A new measurement system that predicts icing has now been installed in Klövsjö. The new equipment can measure the amount of small water droplets in the air, basically measure the fog, to determine if there is a risk of icing on for example wind turbines or power lines.
The equipment uses imaging technologies and advanced sensors that can measure small water droplets in the size of 5-150 micro meter together with wind speed and temperature to determine when it is a risk of icing on objects such as wind turbines or powerlines. The equipment has only been tested in a climate chamber previously and now the equipment is tested for the first time in real conditions. The goal is to commercialize this new measurement system.
