LARAMIA, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, September 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) and LogiLube recently extended their SmartGearTM wind turbine pilot agreement another 6 months at the High Plains Wind Plant, located in Albany and Carbon counties northeast of McFadden, Wyoming. The project, which contains sixty-six 1.5 megawatt turbines, began operations in September 2009.

“We are delighted in Rocky Mountain Power’s vote of confidence in the SmartGear™ technology and its ability to reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCoE) on wind turbines and other industrial equipment,” said LogiLube CEO, Bill Gillette.

LogiLube's SmartGear intelligent gearbox health condition monitoring and prognostics technology has been successfully deployed on a wind turbine gearbox at RMP's High Plains Wind Plant since earlier this year. Rocky Mountain Power (a division of PacifiCorp) is supporting this innovative technology validation as part of its continuous improvement programs.

LogiLube’s SmartGear™ technology provides real-time lube oil condition monitoring (OCM), predictive analytics of lubricant remaining-useful-life (RUL), automated collection of in-service lube oil and lubricant filter status. Real-time condition-based monitoring, combined with fleetwide data analytics and real-time reporting, helps wind park operators avoid costly downtime and unnecessary maintenance. Maintenance plans previously based on a calendar schedule can now be tailored to be implemented on an “as-needed” basis.

This pilot is also highly synergistic with a sister turbine evaluation currently underway at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) in Golden, Colorado. LogiLube's proprietary real-time oil condition evaluation and remaining useful life analytics are poised to revolutionize how equipment owners and operators ensure lowest cost power generation for their end use customers.

Logilube looks forward to communicating the results of the SmartGear™ wind gearbox collaboration project sometime next year.
