Some of the world’s largest wind asset owners engage in data sharing project to reduce dependency to OEMs and improve operations.
“This is a truly ambitious program that will put an end to the OEMs superior position with regards to global performance data. As it is today, only the OEMs can fully harvest the benefits of data analytics and benchmarking, which puts asset owners at a disadvantage.” said Mårten Nilsson, CEO of O2OWIND and coordinator of the project.
“This data sharing initiative is ground-breaking and an excellent opportunity for cross-industry win-win collaboration”, explained Thierry Kalfon, Managing Director Renewables Global Business Line at ENGIE. “We are convinced of the value of data and analytics to improve operational performance. Because in data analytics the quality of the results depends on the quantity of data available, we strongly believe that sharing data between peers will benefit all of us.”, he said.
