Moventas is an expert in designing and manufacturing wind turbine gearbox with over 35 years of experience and around 14 000 units installed globally.
Moventas’s customers are the owner of wind turbine park. As investors, wind turbine park owners want to maximize their return on investment by extending wind turbines’ life cycle and optimize life cycle costs. Challenge is that many of these parks are in rural areas and widely spread – delivering global professional services can be extremely costly.
Moventas adopted Distence edge computing solution by distributing intelligence to the asset level to build their company branded and global scale CMaS -service. Consequently, transferred data between the wind turbine and database can be optimized. In addition, Distence provides an IIoT platform that visualizes data which illustrate indications of potential failures and the exact locations of monitored devices.
Moventas has been able to create the new service business with the condition management system. Wind turbine park owners can increase their return on investments by reducing maintenance costs and extending the wind turbines’ life cycle. Furthermore, end-users can have access to an up-to-date platform to anticipate potential failures of hundreds of units globally.
