Adds VanWager, “It also makes it really easy to get in front of new customers when you show them, on their own personal phone, how they can monitor and control their wind turbines from anywhere.”
SCADA Solutions has installed the Opto 22-based WindCapture system at two wind farms and is working on a third. VanWagner expects utility owners to see significant additional revenue from enabling wind farm control systems that automatically optimize generation for maximum revenue.
He also expects substantial savings from reducing technician travel and labor costs—not to mention the benefits of the system’s preventive maintenance capability.
“If at any time a turbine starts to degrade from a pre-established baseline, WindCapture can send an alert to the customer before there’s a failure,” VanWagner notes.
Opto 22’s groov View interface makes it easy to monitor and control wind turbines from anywhere, using a smartphone or other mobile device.
Together, SCADA Solutions and Opto 22’s SNAP and groov View solutions are helping to keep the lights on in California in a sustainable way.
