Kongsberg launches innovative new solution for 3D subsea monitoring of wind turbines

Kongsberg Maritime has launched a unique solution for the detection of Scouring, Corrosion, Deformation and Marine Growth, which can destabilise wind turbines and underwater structures causing expensive, and potentially environmentally hazardous damage.

On show at WindEnergy Hamburg 2014, the new K-Observer system, which is part of Kongsberg Maritime’s Modular Subsea Monitoring Network (MSM), provides accurate, remote hydroacoustic 3D monitoring using the Dual Axis Scanning Sonar (DAS) to continuously monitor the seabed and the substructure.

The 3D point cloud data created by the DAS is logged and transmitted to shore via the telemetry infrastructure of the K-Observer System (cabled, wireless or satellite) installed on the turbine. The system is designed for long-term installations and performs fully autonomously, from sensor control, data acquisition, to data processing, presentation of results and issuing of alarms (e.g. by text message or email).
