We’re excited to announce that the efficiency of wind energy production worldwide is set for a major boost with the merger of us and the Australian company Ping Services.
Both with global reputations for innovation and service delivery, eologix and Ping are joining forces with this strategic merger, to become the leading provider of continuous wind turbine blade health monitoring solutions in the wind energy industry.
World first complete blade monitoring system
The combined technology of the eologix on-blade sensor system and Ping’s continuous acoustic monitoring system will optimise maintenance, decrease repair costs and increase power generation by delivering a complete blade monitoring solution.
By combining our strengths, the joint system will be the only one on the market that offers wind farm operators a comprehensive, real-time picture of blade health and operation.
A more complete picture of blade health means operators are empowered to recognise issues as soon as they emerge.

The eologix sensor
The eologix sensor (on the left side below) – The eologix sensor sits directly on the outer surface of the blade and provides ice detection, temperature measurement and continuous pitch angle monitoring amongst other vibration-based measurements.
The Ping monitor
The Ping monitor (above right side) – Ping’s monitor is mounted on the base of the wind turbine and detects changes in blade health and operation by measuring acoustic signals. It can also monitor for lightning events (using magnetic fields) and ice build-up based on blade sound. Additionally, a monitor has been developed to sit inside the blade to listen for structural damage.
“By combining our strengths, the joint system will be the only one on the market that offers wind farm operators a comprehensive, real-time picture of blade health and operation.”
(Thomas Schlegl, CEO eologix)
Custom-designed system to meet individual wind farm needs
The data provided by the combined monitoring systems will make safety, legal and insurance compliance easier with every operator being able to ‘design’ the system to suit their needs.
The combined systems will be tailored to meet the individual requirements of every operator, depending on the location, size, make and model of their fleet.
And we’ll provide the most cost-effective solution to meet each operator’s needs.
The perfect Synergy
The synergies between eologix and Ping present the perfect opportunity for combined growth.
The technology we’ve developed, our products, our business ethos and our company culture all provide a significant foundation from which to expand together and reach our collective ambitions.
We’re very excited to become the leading wind turbine blade monitoring provider in the world.
Serving the global market
Ping will retain operations in Australia while eologix will remain in Austria, with both companies servicing the global market. While the merger is effective immediately, the first joint product will be launched in 2023.
