Fluitec Wind to Provide Analytics Platform to Leading European Offshore Wind Farm

The Fluitec Wind solution leverages the new strengths of data science and cloud computing on the wind power industry where almost every turbine is networked to produce prolific amounts of operational and diagnostic data.

Jersey City, NJ September 30, 2013


Fluitec Wind, a world leader in providing data-driven condition monitoring services, has signed an agreement with a leading European Offshore Wind Farm. Without any new investment in capital equipment Fluitec will provide an analytics platform that gives their client a predictive and interactive lens into the health of each wind turbine generator and its major components resulting in improved operational and better financial performance.

According to Mike Borden, Fluitec Wind's Vice President of Wind Business Development, "Fluitec's Analytics Platform is a proven strategy to lower maintenance costs. Ultimately, the cost savings from this program will be reflected in lower energy costs for our client's end use customers."

The Fluitec Wind solution leverages the new strengths of data science and cloud computing on the wind power industry where almost every turbine is networked to produce prolific amounts of operational and diagnostic data. This project will immediately be added to Fluitec's database of more than 5000 wind turbines worldwide.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
