Socially distanced, but still in-the-know! Wind energy relies on the exchange of information at trade fairs and conferences. To ensure that nothing gets lost this year, one of the largest conferences for our sector, WindEnergy Hamburg 2020, will take place – albeit in a different form.
Previously, SKF announced that they had acquired Presenso Ltd. – a company that specializes in artificial intelligence (AI). Adopting data-driven technology presents wind farm operators and OEMs with plenty of opportunity to boost efficiency and reduce costs. So, how does this work in practice?
Exhibitors were unfortunately unable to participate in the digital version of WindEnergy Hamburg this year after all. To ensure that SKF Wind’s exciting showcase is not wasted, this article shares some insights into the technologies and data-driven processes which are shaping the industry. How are new technologies and computer-aided processes influencing the industry?
The digital exhibitor platform at WindEnergy Hamburg was unfortunately cancelled at short notice this year. For all parties still interested in accessing the exciting content from SKF, we are writing up the work that would have been showcased in real time at the trade fair. In this, the first article of a two-part series, the focus is on the topic of sustainability. How can wind turbines become more environmentally friendly?
As a general rule: a taller turbine catches more wind and generates more power. That said, transporting such vast structures to offshore locations is no mean feat, especially given a lack of vessels to carry out the job. This is a joint-sector issue that, until now, remained unsolved.
