Remote Data Monitoring

Onshore and Offshore 24/7

For all technical equipment in operation, it is important to be continuously assured that everything is running smoothly. Whether wind turbines or substations, onshore or offshore or the relevant subsystems – you will be looked after by experts in our Ostenfeld control room.

The remote data monitoring employees are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is also possible for customers to specify the intensity of collaboration and the degree of job sharing.

Find faults proactively

Our control room, completely refurbished in 2015, provides every technical and safety feature necessary for upcoming projects. This includes the integration, compatible in terms of safety technology, of offshore wind parks as well as the monitoring of onshore wind turbines, also ones installed beyond the borders of Europe.

Find faults proactively

Furthermore, the new control room creates the basis for a further improved proactive fault analysis. Within the scope of the “Prognos Brain” project (in collaboration with the Fraunhofer institute and the company, resolto GmbH), we also contribute to continuous advances in “artificial intelligence”.

Special technical features make the Deutsche Windtechnik control room stand out from other conventional control rooms. For example, the integrated alarm server enables immediate reaction to any faults that are registered. We can thus analyse the fault immediately and then initiate the necessary steps to remedy it straight away. Our statistics show that we are able to remedy 60 to 70 percent of incoming fault reports just by resetting the system operation. The downtime for the wind turbine should not exceed two hours.

Remote data monitoring is much more than a simple monitoring tool: it serves as the basis for numerous improvement processes.

All data relevant to the wind turbine are prepared and stored for the long term. Processed using intelligent systems and methods of analysis, they are invaluable indicators for improvements to the operation of the system.

Whether for performance enhancement, improvement in availability, reducing wear and tear, improving work processes – the data is often the basis for this and is checked for validity by the different units, sorted and unified and thus made ready for the evaluation process.

Remote data monitoring is the basis for our comprehensive information management for the customers. In addition to the raw data, all documents, reports, events and the complete history is stored during remote data monitoring.

This forms the basis for a continuous lifecycle service record, which we can then use to prepare numerous individual reports.

Our customers are increasingly requesting our consulting services to enable them to effectively meet the requirements that have intensified over the last few years.

  • Direct electricity marketing
  • Feed-in management
  • Occupational safety and quality management

are only a few key words to exemplify the necessity for close consultation, to avoid duplication of work and simultaneously guarantee responsibility for completing the task.

“Big data” has now become a much quoted term and it is also not uncommon for it to be critically questioned. For us, “big data” is commonplace, but at the same time also a challenge and an opportunity. 

It is clear that with advancing developments in the wind energy industry, an increasing number of electrical engineering, electronics, control engineering, IT and sensor systems are being built (the buzzword here is CMS – condition monitoring systems) and therefore ever more information is becoming available. Keeping control of such a large volume of data is no mean feat.

The employees responsible for this at Deutsche Windtechnik have dedicated themselves to just this specialised topic together with a range of partners (including system manufacturers, research institutions, specialised analysts and others). They systematically process the data in order to generate meaningful and reliable analyses with genuine added value.
