“If you are looking for a reliable, accurate and affordable tool for condition monitoring of your wind turbines, you need to check out i4SEE. 

“They took the time to figure out our needs and goals as a company and gave us a few excellent solutions to choose from. We accomplished detecting abnormalities and small damages at the early stages, thanks to i4SEE ‘s modules such as i4SEE Heat and i4SEE GearDrive. Consequently, we are avoiding sudden failures of key components on our fleet. 

“It is a great accomplishment considering the size, variety of turbines’ types and geographic locations of our assets. What we love most about i4SEE is that it can work accurately based on SCADA data thanks to their smart computation model and their knowledge of the wind industry. We cannot end this testimonial without mentioning the courtesy that the i4SEE team has always shown us and the quality of their customer services. 

“We definitely recommend i4SEE to everyone we know.”
