Sensoria is a remote rotor blade monitor that detects and reports damages in real-time, including cracks, lightning strikes, skin ruptures and perforations (including those caused by leading-edge erosion), delaminations, and more. By sending immediate damage alerts to operators, Sensoria enables them to maximize blade uptime and generating capacity while preventing damages from worsening.

The patent (patent #11168668) demonstrates Mistras’ dedication, innovation, and leadership in wind energy.

Chief Executive Officer and President Dennis Bertolotti commented, “Wind turbines may be at the forefront of the 21st-century energy industry, but the tools available for maintaining them have historically lagged further behind. Sensoria bridges this gap and provides value for owners and operators by helping to detect problems before their turbine assets are forced offline,” continued Bertolotti, “and this new patent helps protect the investment we have made in developing this innovative technology.”

By “listening” for signs of damage before they become visible, Sensoria incorporates Mistras Group’s world-class acoustic emission (AE) technology for the early detection of trouble. Some of the world’s most valuable assets, including bridges, refineries, transformers, and iconic structures, depend on Mistras’ proven AE technology to help operators make earlier, better-informed integrity decisions.

“Sensoria™ empowers our customers to operate more productively, cost-effectively, and safely,” said Jon Wolk, Mistras Group Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “The combination of our advanced technology, monitoring expertise, and maintenance resources digitalizes the blade integrity management process for our wind energy customers, helping to minimize maintenance costs and maximize uptime.”

As the wind energy market grows exponentially worldwide, blades continue to age and require more advanced solutions to ensure productivity and integrity. With Sensoria™, wind energy organizations gain Edge-to-Edge Intelligence to transform their wind blade integrity management.
