Gamesa and the Iberdrola Group, through its engineering and construction subsidiary, have launched a wind sector-pioneering system which enables the remote management, using a single interface, of any make of wind turbine, anywhere in the world.
Leveraging both firms’ know-how and experience in the wind sector, this new system, called WindCORE + WindOne, lets operators control and monitor this class of renewable facilities from a distance, analyse their operating data and generate reports with a view to optimising their electricity output.
This tool developed jointly by Gamesa and Iberdrola has become an indispensable tool for supervising, in real time and from a single control centre, the multiple variables which can affect a wind farm’s operations, from wind speed at each turbine to their temperature, intensity and production. Analysis of these variables feeds the development of predictive models which in turn facilitate operations and maintenance work.
In addition, the WindCORE + WindOne system is capable of operating, using a single interface, turbines made by any manufacturer, doing away with the need for a different software programme for each technology brand, as is the case with most of the systems being used at present.
