The event took place on November 24, 2020 in a hybrid format: face-to-face (Zamudio Technology Park) and online (via Zoom)
During the launch meeting of the Technological Forum of "Digitalization in the energy sector" organized by the Basque Energy Cluster, Iker Arrizabalaga, from HINE GROUP presented the identification of failure modes of the pitch system of a wind turbine through data analysis in the framework of the DOCC-OFF project.
The Technological Forums are defined as one of the key mechanisms of sectoral dynamization and are outlined as a meeting place between the technological offer (Centers, Universities, technology-based companies) and potential demanding companies or users of said offer. This first meeting of the Technology Forum was dedicated to digital technologies and, more specifically, to those related to the capture and exploitation of data from assets and power plants in operation. The favorable context for the energy transition and digital transformation offers interesting market opportunities to those companies that position themselves in the energy value chains with a competitive offer of digital products and services.
"As component developers, for us the main reason to digitalize our component comes from the side of gaining knowledge of the real functioning of the hydraulic system in operation. We also want to have a digital platform to manage all that information and to develop analytical capabilities. We want to ultimately improve our components, train ourselves to develop new features and services, and reduce the cost of power generation. We know that we are a key piece in this objective of reducing costs" says Iker during the presentation.
