GE has launched a new software that the company claims will help project operators to optimise renewable asset performance and operations across a fleet.
The Lifespan software, developed with operators, will offer real-time monitoring and control, predictive analytics to give insights on asset health and performance, and integrated planning and mobile applications for execution of work in the field, the tech giant added.
The Lifespan suite of products can be used on non-GE wind turbines, a spokesman said.
GE hopes it can help operators understand the status of their assets and make better choices when it comes to monitoring, analysis, inspection, execution, and security.
Lifespan will be capable of providing real-time command and control and deep insights into fleet and site performance. This will enable the shift to condition-based maintenance to optimise energy production, the company explained.
“We designed the product to connect all aspects of the organisation to drive efficient operations, deploying the latest technology to create an integrated user experience, robust data management, expanded analytics, and provide information at the fingertips of field teams and our customers,” added Brian Case, GE’s chief digital officer for onshore wind digital services.
“It increases transparency across all facets of an organisation from the CEO/asset manager to field operations.”
