Digital innovation for wind energy

Enabling intelligence for operations and maintenance

Optimizing wind energy operations and maximizing safety

Wind energy is a growing part of the power mix. However, the massive capital investments, significant operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, and relatively short life span of individual turbines create new challenges for wind energy suppliers.

The future success of wind energy depends upon:

Extending the lifecycle of existing assets using digital technologies

Predicting the longevity of future assets using data insights

Data quality is critical for the protection and optimization of wind assets. Atos leads the way in delivering actionable wind farm intelligence.

Webinar: Digital solutions for wind
operations & maintenance

Wind farms not only generate sustainable energy, but jobs and green recovery as well. In this short webinar, discover how digital twins enable condition-based maintenance for the proactive identification of asset faults, and operations & maintenance (O&M) cost savings of at least 10%.
