Wind turbine Blade Optical Health Monitoring (BOHEM)

Monitoring the health of wind turbine blades

contact the team

We’re working with Glasgow-based SME Wideblue Ltd on the BOHEM (Wind Turbine Blade Optical Health Monitoring) project that began in September 2016.

BOHEM aims to deliver a low-cost, optimised camera sensor system built into wind turbine blades. The system is designed to monitor blade shape changes in all weather and operational circumstances.

The data generated will be used to monitor individual blade health, allow early detection of any changes in performance, and allow of better justifications of life extensions.
