IBERDROLA has launched a renewal plan for the existing condition monitoring systems in their plants in Spain. This plan will be implemented gradually and PROSIG was selected to install their PROTOR Vibration Condition Monitoring System in three IBERDROLA power stations. The contract was awarded to PROSIG in partnership with Aries Ingeniería y Sistemas, who are PROSIG’s representative in Spain.

PROSIG have already successfully commissioned and installed the PROTOR system in the Lada (Asturias, Spain) and the Pasajes (Guipúzcoa, Spain) power plants. The work primarily consists of the supply, installation and signal cabling of the PROTOR systems together with training of the IBERDROLA staff. PROSIG will complete the third installation at the Velilla power plant, located in Palencia, Spain in September 2010.

The monitoring and diagnosis of rotating equipment based on vibration analysis measurement is at the core of predictive maintenance systems. This type of system allows the condition and health of machines to be assessed. During operation, rotating equipment experiences dynamic stress caused by hydraulic, mechanical or electrical forces that induce vibrations and contribute to both ageing and wear of machines. The damage level of a rotating machine is reflected in several measureable factors.

The PROTOR Vibration Monitoring System, designed and manufactured by PROSIG, provides reliable on-line monitoring of turbine generators, main boiler feed pumps and other auxiliary plant equipment. It provides both real-time and long-term historical access to the import vibration factors together with various plant process parameters which indicate the machine state.

Without information on the condition of primary equipment, such as turbines, pumps and associated plant, impending faults go unnoticed and develop into severe conditions that could result in failures. Failures may lead to unscheduled outages or more serious equipment damage with consequent loss of revenues.

Prosig provides turnkey data capture and analysis systems for a wide range of applications with particular focus on NVH and acoustical testing for the automotive, aerospace and power generation Industries. The company designs and develops its own products and its engineers have decades of experience in solving real-world noise and vibration problems for major organizations throughout the world. Prosigs product range is divided broadly into two areas: general purpose, flexible data acquisition and analysis systems (P8000 & DATS) or custom condition monitoring systems (PROTOR).
