Svevind Solutions adopts Greenbyte Energy Cloud asset maintenance software
The renewable energy sector, and the wind energy sector in particular, is heavily dependent on efficient asset maintenance monitoring to ensure peak output at all times. Which is why Swedish wind energy asset managers Svevind Solutions have selected asset maintenance software from Greenbyte to manage the asset maintenance requirements of some of the world’s largest wind farms. PIF reports on this green energy partnership.
Greenbyte Energy Cloud asset maintenance software
Swedish asset manager Svevind Solutions, a subsidiary of Swedish wind energy developer Svevind, has chosen Greenbyte’s Energy Cloud to support the rapid rollout of advanced optimisation and maintenance across an expanding operational fleet and a growing portfolio of third-party wind assets.
The software will give Svevind Solutions the flexibility to effectively oversee the operations and maintenance (O&M) of some of the largest wind farms in the world and develop innovative new techniques for optimising cold climate performance.
Sweden’s expanding renewable energy sector
The appetite for wind energy development in Sweden has risen in recent years, driven by the arrival of major corporations, such as Google, Facebook and Amazon, seeking to offset their carbon footprint, and a wider pool of international institutional investors. The Swedish market is consequently adopting pioneering approaches to both the development and asset management of large-scale, post-subsidy wind farms.
Svevind Solutions’ parent company, Svevind, has been heavily involved in the development of these new large-scale sites, including the 4 GW Markbygden project in Northern Sweden. The project, set to be the largest in Europe when completed, covers an area over 450 square kilometres and consists of 1,101 turbines that will provide 6.6 percent of Sweden’s total energy production.
Greenbyte asset monitoring solutions
Greenbyte Energy Cloud offers a comprehensive datahub that allows effective asset monitoring of large turbine fleets and wind farm portfolios, enabling the ability to pull all turbine and site data into one place. Svevind Solutions chose to pilot the platform across two of its projects over the summer and, following this successful trial, plans to continue the rollout across its operational sites, alongside its portfolio of third party assets under management.
Greenbyte’s asset monitoring solution, which is designed to evolve over time to encompass the latest technical advances in asset management, will also enable Svevind Solutions to continue developing new advanced tools for its customers – particularly in the area of cold climate turbine optimisation.
Highest standards of asset management support
“With the development of larger wind energy projects – and continuous innovation in performance optimisation techniques – Greenbyte Energy Cloud offers a future-proof software platform for wind energy portfolio owners and asset managers in Sweden and further afield looking for a more effective route to driving value for investors” said Patrik Lindvall, Director of Sales at Greenbyte.
“We’re looking forward to working with Svevind Solutions as they continue to expand and evolve their advanced asset management offering for the Nordic wind energy markets,” he added.
Per Olofsson, CEO at Svevind Solutions, added that working with Greenbyte and their asset maintenance software enables Svevind to deliver the highest standards of asset management support, not only at Svevind sites but across all clients projects, as well as ensuring the company continues to lead the market in cold climate performance optimisation.
