Remote Monitoring of Assets
In renewable energy (RE) facilities, asset condition monitoring is a challenge as machines are distributed across wide expanses of land/sea and sometimes inaccessible. Using sensors and the Internet (IoT technology), equipment can exchange data with little or no human intervention. For instance, you can monitor turbine parameters, such as rotor speed or nacelle position, without visiting your offshore wind farm.
Real-time Data Measurements
Relaying data recorded by sensors in real time enables corrective measures when and where necessary. Timely interventions considerably reduce the number of surprise incidents and unplanned downtimes. Real-time measurements can also aid in regulating machine utilization and output.
Computerised Machine Maintenance
When all your machines are connected to a central monitoring unit, maintenance management becomes smoother and efficient. Scheduling maintenance tasks, tracking work orders (internal and external), recording asset history can all be done using a single system. The centralized system also ensures a single version of truth for audits and certifications.
On-The-Go Access to Data
Mobile apps integrated with the digital cloud ecosystem bring data to your fingertips. Through custom developed applications, you can access machine or energy-related data from any location and even while on the move. Technicians may update task progress as they work on site and you could monitor energy production from wherever you are.
