  • KONGSBERG to collaborate with Ricardo on wind farm bearing monitoring technology

    18 September 2014

    Ricardo and KONGSBERG have today announced that they have signed a framework agreement that will see Ricardo support the development of the Kongsberg Wind Farm Management System (WFMS) as well as related condition monitoring systems for a range of other industrial sectors.

    The Kongsberg WFMS is a turbine independent decision support system. It surpasses the functionality found in wind farm supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and offers a modern and intuitive user interface based on KONGSBERG’s wide ranging experience in automation and decision support systems for the defence, maritime and offshore oil & gas sectors.

    KONGSBERG selected Ricardo to support the development of the WFMS not least ...
