Natural Power selects Kongsberg Digital for wind asset optimisation
The agreement between Natural Power and Kongsberg Digital entails capture and storage of data from assets as well as performance, reporting and analytics services.
“Digitalisation offers some attractive solutions for wind asset operators looking to make renewable energy even more efficient,” says Hege Skryseth, President of Kongsberg Digital. “Using our wind asset management applications, Natural Power will be able to predict maintenance needs, standardise reporting and optimise operations. This lowers costs and increases the general viability of wind as an energy source.”
The integrated solution will support more efficient work processes. Natural Power will receive all data and functionality in one system, with a significantly simplified reporting process as one of the benefits. Kongsberg applications will provide access to proven tools including advanced analytics to optimise performance and reduce operational cost for the assets.
Lauren Wheatley, Director of Advisory and Analytics, said: “The Kongsberg digital platform is a key component in our digital strategy providing the foundation for our advanced performance engineering program. This platform will allow us to continue to deliver a high-quality service whilst providing opportunities to further innovate.”
Callum McLean, Head of Innovation and Data at Natural Power, added: “We were attracted by Kongsberg’s proactive and collaborative approach, and we are well matched in terms of our appetite for digital innovation within the renewable energy sector.”
