Planet OS has announced Powerboard, a data intelligence solution that helps wind farm operators and renewable energy service providers to increase power output by up to 30%. The solution combines real-time operational and industrial data with a growing programmatic catalogue of open and commercial data from external data providers into a single cloud-based solution.
The result is an interactive analysis tool that permits detailed optimisation of a wind farm. Furthermore, Powerboard allows stakeholders from operators, technicians to managers regardless of location to collaborate in planning and operating a wind farm to great effect. RWE has joined forces with Planet OS as the launch partner for Powerboard. They are currently using Powerboard at Gwynt y Môr, their largest offshore wind farm and, they plan to use Powerboard on a number of other wind farms in their portfolio. Powerboard is built on the cloud-based Planet OS data infrastructure, which can process all major geospatial and Earth Observation data types and formats, in addition to supporting conventional industrial sensor data.
