Telemetry Load Monitoring

IMES Ltd were selected to design and build a load monitoring system to support installation of power lines to a series of offshore wind turbine platforms.

Measurement of the mechanical load on the umbilical during in haul needed to be accurate which was made more complicated as the wrap angle on the sheave would vary as the winch, located on a vessel, moved as a result of heave.

A solution was designed and manufactured incorporating an X-Y load pin, battery power supplies and telemetry system to allow all involved in the operation to accurately read the load.
