Natural Power, which currently manages 5 GW of renewable energy capacity across Europe and the US. has signed an agreement with Kongsberg Digital to use applications for wind asset management, hosted on KONGSBERG's digital ecosystem Kognifai. The agreement between Natural Power and Kongsberg Digital entails capture and storage of data from assets as well as performance, reporting and analytics services.


"Digitilisation offers some attractive solutions for wind asset operators looking to make renewable energy even more efficient," says Hege Skryseth, President of Kongsberg Digital.

Kongsberg applications will provide access to proven tools including advanced analytics to optimise performance and reduce operational cost for the assets.
