Sciemus Wind, RWE Innogy join Wind Energy Update in Webinar about Big Data in Onshore Wind O&M

Leading wind data analysts Sciemus Wind will join RWE Innogy, a major European utility in innovative data-centric asset management, in a free webinar on July 28 at 14:00 BST (13:00 UTC) where they will provide insights on how to intelligently inform the day-to-day management of a utility’s onshore assets in the field by effectively using Big Data.

James Ingham, Renewable Analyst at Sciemus Wind, will bring exclusive data from Sciemus’ extensive database - totalling around 185,000 operational years of data – in order to demonstrate how the application of performance benchmarking can enhance wind farm profit and ROI.

David Jones, Head of Joint Ventures & Asset Management at RWE Innogy, will provide exclusive insight into how this utility with 635 MW of onshore wind assets are leading the way in innovative O&M through the harnessing of novel Big Data techniques.

The lack of a standardised approach to measuring wind turbine availability and reliability, which has plagued the industry, has led to a strong dependence on subjective and opinion-based processes in carrying out performance assessments. This, in turn, leads to gross inaccuracies in benchmarking the performance of a wind turbine compared to its peer group, and further undermines decisions surrounding asset valuations and/or turbine selection.

What the wind power industry needs is a robust and fact-based wind turbine reliability data that provides the necessary transparency in carrying out wind turbine benchmarks.
In just one hour, the webinar will highlight how to benchmark against the two key metrics, failure rates and turbine outage duration, to gain better market positioning. It will provide the key elements needed to accurately assess the effectiveness of an O&M programme.

A crucial objective of a good O&M programme is to keep the O&M budget to a minimum, and one of the most efficient ways to do that is having a maintenance response strategy streamlined against turbine specific historical component problem areas, one of the reasons Big Data has arrived in the Wind O&M space and is set to stay.

The webinar will take place on July 28 at 14:00 BST (13:00 UTC).
