DOCC-OFF PROJECT aims to demonstrate the impact of sensing and remote monitoring in the critical subsystems in offshore wind turbines
The main challenge of DOCC-OFF will be to validate and to demonstrate the sensors, remote monitoring systems and big data analytics tools that will allow to obtain data from the pitch system, which is the technology used to operate and control the angle of the blades in a wind turbine.
This project pursues to use the knowledge extracted from the operational data to improve the designs of the wind turbine components, increasing their reliability, productivity, energy efficiency and understanding the interaction with other components under real operating conditions.

How digitalization can help the wind industry remain resilient during COVID-19 pandemic
03 June 2020
Owner-operators with effective digital strategies will be able to remotely monitor and manage asset health without needing to send teams onsite, thus helping to ensure their wind farms remain online and productive during the epidemic wherever possible.
Big data ‘could help drive better performance of wind energy assets’
02 June 2020
Global wind capacity of more than 650GW is generating 400 billion points of data annually. Big data could help drive better performance of wind energy assets. That’s according to Greenbyte AB, which notes global wind energy production of more than 650GW is generating 400 billion data points annually – it says this big data could allow a better understanding of turbine performance, prompt cost saving measures and help improve operational and maintenance of wind energy assets. The research states that developers must explore digital innovations to avoid long term data challenges.
