With the production of wind renewable energy set to grow exponentially in the UK to meet net-zero targets by 2050, availability and uptime of assets are of key importance to renewable energy companies. And with many onshore and offshore wind sites located remotely, it is essential to understand how assets are performing and be aware of potential issues before they impact operations.
Among the most critical of these assets are electricity transformers that connect renewable generation facilities to the electricity grid - if an electricity transformer suffers an outage, this can result in partial or even complete loss of generation for a prolonged period, significantly impacting revenues. The intermittent nature of renewable generation places increased stress on these transformers.
By partnering with Camlin Energy, Renewable Plant Owners and Operators can gain a deeper understanding of the risk, health, and performance of their electricity transformers through our online monitoring solution TOTUS.
