TrakkaTM will be used by Vestas to monitor the condition of gearboxes and hydraulic systems in North American wind turbines that are under service contract by Vestas. Vestas services wind farms throughout the U.S. and Canada, using multiple regional lubrication laboratories. TrakkaTM will consolidate oil analysis information from all laboratories and make it available to engineers and regional service groups in one database.
Bob Williams, Vice President of Dingo states, “Dingo is widely known in the mining industry. Six of the ten largest mining companies in the world use Dingo’s Condition Based Asset Management tools. While this is not Dingo’s first order outside of the mining industry, it does represent our first order in the alternative “green” energy market segment.”
“It is with great pleasure we announce this order,” says Steve Bradbury, Dingo global COO. “Any industry that is dependent on lubricated assets for their production, can realize the same benefits that our many mining customers have received for almost two decades.”
