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. Read more
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.
The European project “Digitalization Of Critical Components in OFFshore wind turbines” (lead by the Basque Energy Cluster) aims to demonstrate the impact of sensing and remote monitoring in the optimization of the design, the increase of the performance and the reduction of maintenance costs of critical subsystems in offshore wind turbines. The project kicked off last 21st of January at HINE facilities in Olaberria and has a budget of €1M and it is financed by the European Union´s Maritime and Fisheries Fund. Read more
