Onyx Insight marks 10 years of maximising turbine efficiency

Predictive analytics solution provider Onyx Insight has delivered more than $340 million in savings to the wind industry throught its fleetMONITOR conditioning monitoring software, designed for owners of mixed assets and enabling centralised analysis of data from multiple CMS systems.

The hardware-agnostic software is built to work with any CMS system and is actively used across more than 20,000 turbines currently, enabling rapid diagnostics of turbine reliability problems. Its fault database covers over 30 turbine OEMs, allowing asset owners to anticipate major component failures 24 months in advance and use this information to extend assets’ useful life, optimise supply chain, and ultimately improve operational efficiency.

The technology has successfully collected over one billion data measurements and abated more than one million tonnes of CO2 – the equivalent of taking 632,030 cars off the road – by avoiding the requirement for component replacements, de-risking catastrophic failures and reducing downtime.

Adopted by leading wind energy asset owners, operators and OEMs including Pattern Energy, ERG and bp to name a few, fleetMONITOR is cloud-based for rapid deployment and can be seamlessly integrated to monitor data across different components and over 15 hardware systems in one place, simplifying the increasingly complex landscape of wind turbine operations. Further efficiencies are achieved by utilising the latest AI advancements to combine vibration, SCADA, oil particles and temperature data for market-leading levels of certainty.

“Ten years ago we spearheaded the drive towards predictive maintenance with the launch of fleetMONITOR, effectively transforming the industry approach to traditional condition monitoring” said Won Shin, VP Product at Onyx Insight. “I am proud that we have continued this trajectory, scaling our offering to develop new innovations backed by engineering know-how to provide unparalleled visibility over the health of wind turbine fleets, leading to a nearly 50 percent increase in turbines actively in the system in the last 12 months alone.

Our technology sets the bar for flexibility, efficiency and quality in wind turbine health management, and as reliability issues remain a key industry-wide challenge, our solutions have never been more relevant. Predictive maintenance is no longer a ‘nice to have’, it’s a critical element in ensuring performance and efficiency across wind turbine fleets and we are proud to be a leader in this space. I look forward to the next ten years of advancing the future of condition monitoring.”

fleetMONITOR is backed by ONYX’s experienced condition monitoring teams in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, which work as extensions of operators’ organisations, supporting them with technology transfer on their journey to in-house monitoring and ultimately greater visibility and control over their assets’ health.
