Digital solution provider, Sereema, is providing its Windfit system to optimize Valeco Group’s new wind farm. Since February 2017, the 7 Enercon E-70 wind turbines installed in Cap Espigne have been equipped with a Sereema Windfit box.
“As an operator, it is essential for the Valeco Group to optimize a wind farm as soon as it is put into service,” said Sébastien Appy, Operations Manager at Valeco. “Windfit will allow us to maximize our energy production while preserving our machines. This collaboration also shows just how dynamic is our region in terms of innovation in renewable energies.”
Windfit boxes use smart sensors to analyze the operation of turbines with the wind, providing more accurate indicators than the SCADA data. By selecting this system, the Valeco Group can now easily identify necessary adjustments to ensure optimal operation of its new wind assets.
“Windfit will enable the Valeco Group to better analyze the operation of its new farm in local conditions,” said Jérôme Imbert, CEO of Sereema. “It will be used to dialogue with the supplier of the wind turbines in order to tune the settings as finely as possible. This new digital approach is a real opportunity for us to demonstrate the flexibility of our Windfit solution.”
