Locating faults in onshore aluminium cables

icon for challenge

SSE Renewables is looking for innovations in monitoring the cable and establishing the potential failure point in the cable from the sub-stations in as near to real time as possible. Ideally, this should aim to replacing or mitigate the need for the manual Megger test e.g. by inline tracing. The winning business(es) in this competition will be given a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution, and receive support from SSE Renewables, KTN, Catapults and the wider Innovate UK network.

Full Field Condition Monitoring of a Blade Internal Structure

icon for challenge

The innovation Exchange (iX), delivered in partnership with ORE Catapult and the Knowledge Transfer Network, is supporting GE to identify innovative solutions to innovation challenges. GE is looking for applicants to develop a full field condition monitoring device for the blade internal structure that can continuously monitor during turbine operation (thus picking up failures which are only visible during operation, such as kissing bonds) to direct an automated / robotic detailed inspection.
