Neoen chooses QOS Energy O&M system to monitor Australian wind farm

The Hornsdale wind project will be amongst the largest wind farms operating in Australia once fully commissioned. It will consist of 96 Siemens 3.2 MW wind turbines and is currently being built in three stages, two of which have already been completed. Neoen has deployed Qantum, the IEC compliant energy management Software as a Service (SaaS) powered by QOS Energy, to monitor the two first stages of the project.

One main benefit for Neoen is the fact that no additional hardware or system installation is required onsite to run the software, which allows for a swift and cost effective set-up of data acquisition processes. The platform gathers and analyses data generated by each turbine for all measured values using a secure VPN connection. Qantum is compatible with every kind of wind turbine, communication standard or database connection protocol.

Neoen can customise operating dashboards, analysis, KPIs, alerts, reports or contracts depending on their specific needs. The engineering team of QOS Energy has delivered bespoke performance indicators and KPIs for the whole wind farm, and custom operating dashboards have been delivered for each user type.

We are very proud of the successful collaboration we have with Neoen for this important project” said Fabrice Wacogne, Chief Customer Success Officer at QOS Energy. “Our day-to-day challenge is to deliver best-in-class O&M analytics services for some of the largest renewable projects in the world. Project after project, Qantum continues to showcase its powerful analytic and O&M performance capabilities”.

Laurent Francisci, Operations director Australia at Neoen, added that the QOS system will enable Neoen to monitor the wind farm’s operational and financial performance as soon as each turbine is installed onsite.
