REpower Systems AG, a German manufacturer of onshore and offshore wind turbines, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Canadian company GasTOPS Ltd. - a provider of control system and condition assessment products for the wind industry - for the supply of 2,000 oil particle sensors.

According to the company, these sensors are the ideal complement to the automated monitoring of drivetrains in onshore and offshore wind turbines. Following comprehensive tests, REpower will fit the sensors, which are recognized by leading German insurance companies, into its turbines beginning in October.
