Renewable generation technologies are developing rapidly to meet carbon reduction and net zero goals, making schemes larger and ever more remote to access. Synaptec technology can provide automation of condition monitoring to anticipate and prevent expensive outages.
With offshore windfarms now reaching Gigawatt capacity, power cables and infrastructure are scaling up and becoming more valuable, yet increasingly difficult to access. And with cable failures still representing the largest operational cost in offshore wind, the losses from outages and replacement campaign costs become even more expensive. We believe it is vital to monitor every power cable and electrical asset comprehensively to give operators real-time operational control and earlier failure warnings to avoid these costs.

Our automated condition monitoring solution
Our unique, passive instrumentation technology requires no power supplies or telecommunication infrastructure at measurement locations. As a result, it can be easily retrofitted or installed on new projects to improve real-time visibility, control, and condition monitoring of any remote HV asset, such as power cables. Synaptec systems provide earlier failure warnings in more locations which are overlooked by conventional techniques, allowing earlier intervention to avoid faults.
