Cognite and WindSim partner on next-gen digital solutions for wind farms
The partnership focuses on expanding offshore wind farms and grid infrastructure
Global industrial AI software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider Cognite has entered a strategic partnership with WindSim, a pioneer and leading provider of computational-fluid-dynamics-based wind farm design tools (WFDT).
“To better serve the North American market WindSim and Cognite product offerings are expanded to include transmission line performance monitoring and evaluation of enhanced current carrying capacity targeted at wind plant integration,” announced Cognite.
WindSim’s simulation technology offers accurate and reliable visualizations of complex terrains, enabling engineering and operations teams in wind industries to plan offshore wind farms effectively.
Cognite’s data operations and contextualization platform Cognite Data Fusion (CDF), which contextualizes industrial data and makes it actionable, will support WindSim’s advanced analytics.
Through their new partnership, Cognite and WindSim will help maximize new and existing asset performance, increase energy efficiency, and reduce transmission bottlenecks and costs in the power and utility industry.
“The application of CFD technology and other advanced methods in the wind energy industry is an important part of the decisioning process for greenfield and brownfield projects,” said Donna Rennemo, CEO of WindSim.
Rennemo continued, “With Cognite Data Fusion, WindSim’s unique solution can leverage high-fidelity data and paint a clearer picture of the potential decision outcomes. Making data do more so that it is available, processed, and simulated well, helps wind farm owners and transmission owners and operators optimize operations, reduce costs and reduce investment risks.”
Trygve Ronningen, chief operating officer of Cognite North America adds, “This collaboration with WindSim deploys an important layer of value and clarity on top of inherently messy industrial data. By enabling WindSim to leverage prepared data and scale with less effort, organizations can more effectively move from proofs of concept to productized, high-ROI deployment.”
