French Valeco Group recently renewed their trust to Sereema company, after more than two years of successful collaboration to equip the wind turbines on their farms with Windfit® system.
Valeco, who’s been using the solution since its commercial launch back in 2017, just announced their decision to triple the quantity of Windfit connected boxes. Deployed upon 5 wind farms, the solution will ensure performance optimization and lifetime preservation of the turbines on the long-run.
“The choice to install Windfit on more turbines is linked to our goal of asset production optimization while keeping a close operational monitoring so as to reduce the wear on the machines. WindfiT is one solution among our fleet of tools to provide real-time production follow-up on our farms at all times. “, Sebastien Appy, Head of Operations.
A unique interface: from detection to alerts and correction
The digital platform is included in the subscription of Windfit. It displays in one single web page all the relevant info extracted from the data gathered by the sensors embedded in the box. Processed by Sereema’s patented algorithms, the relevant data is extracted and presented as actionable results automatically alerting at each critical issue detected.
“Listening to our customers is essential to improve the service they get from Windfit. Talking to our clients made us realize how Windfit was helping them by unloading the burden of analysis and diagnosis work off their shoulders. They rely on Windfit for that and focus on correcting the machines parameters. When Windfit is permanently installed, as is the case with Valeco’s fleet, it becomes the asset manager’s autonomous assistant, doing the monkey work, while they turn to optimization and lifetime extension issues”. Bruno Pinto, CTO.
