US: Online environmental geospatial data provider, Planet OS has introduced its data intelligence solution, Powerboard on Tuesday. The solution will help wind farm operators and renewable energy service providers to boost power output by up to 30%.
The technology will provide easy-to-use data visualization experience to wind farm operators that will allow them to significantly streamline their daily operations and maintenance related work, which will lead to an increased profitability and safety. The solution combines real-time operational and industrial data with a growing programmatic catalog of open and commercial data from external data providers into a single cloud-based solution.
The Powerboard solution comes with an interactive analysis tool that permits detailed optimization of a wind and it replaces rooms full of distracting monitors that are not integrated at a software level. Furthermore, Powerboard allows stakeholders from operators, technicians to managers regardless of location to collaborate in planning and operating a wind farm to great effect.
Built on cloud-based Planet OS data infrastructure, Powerboard can process all major geospatial and Earth Observation data types and formats, in addition to supporting conventional industrial sensor data. Planet OS is also on a mission to deliver relevant external data by syndicating the world’s largest programmatic database of geospatial environmental data so clients can access a growing catalog of over 800 parameters via one consistent API.
“Powerboard provides us with the potential for optimizing operations and increasing renewable energy production from our wind farms,” said Peter Terium, chief executive officer of the RWE Group. “We are currently using Powerboard at Gwynt y Môr, our largest offshore wind farm, to help increase our power output and improve operational efficiency. As we deploy Powerboard to other renewable energy sites, we hope to further improve our competitive position.”
Planet OS Powerboard is available now to customers around the world, starting with a proof-of-concept and value analysis to validate the implementation for both parties before engaging in a multi-year contractual relationship based on benefits gain-share.
