Transense Technologies is developing new instrumentation applications utilising its core wireless, passive Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) measurement technology with GE, a provider of products to the global Power and Water, Oil and Gas, Energy Management,Aviation, Healthcare, and Transportation industries. This development aligns the Transense SAW technology expertise with GE's proficiency in large scale production and product delivery, to open up new global opportunities.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Transense and GE in May 2015.

Graham Storey, Transense Group CEO said: "Working with an industry leading developer of world-class technology applications is exactly the right platform for Transense's SAW technology to enter the commercial environment. We look forward to working further with GE to strengthen their product offerings, bringing the benefits of our technology to the infrastructure markets GE serves".

In a further application of Transense’s torque sensing solutions, the Company is now part of a consortium of nine companies, “IntelWind”, that has begun development on a major EU funded project to improve the efficiency of wind turbines.

Transense will receive a grant to develop SAW torque sensors for the large diameter shafts required for this project and the work required to integrate these sensors into the newly developed wind turbine designs. Involvement in this project came about as a result of work already underway with a major wind turbine gearbox design house. There is an increasing demand for wind turbine monitoring systems and Transense is positioning itself to exploit this emerging high value market as it develops.

Additionally, the expertise gained during the technical development work on these much larger shafts has applications in many other markets, such as marine and power generation. The IntelWind consortium projects turnover accruing to Transense of €700k for the year commencing Q4 2013 rising to €2.1 million in 2017.
