Management System Allows More Control of Turbines


Greenbyte AB in Gothenburg, Sweden, introduces Control, the newest section in Breeze. Control allows users of Breeze to start and stop wind turbines in real-time and from anywhere.

Breeze is a modern user-friendly wind-farm management system. With more than 360 wind farms in 20 countries, Breeze brings state-of-the-art, cloud-based software to the wind industry to increase energy production.

“When we launched Breeze, we did so to improve some of the most fundamental parts in the operation and management of wind farms,” said Mikael Baros, director of Technology with Greenbyte. “Soon after, our customers requested the possibility to do more with the collected data. Since then, the service has quickly grown in scope and capability to an indispensable daily tool for managing large-scale wind-power portfolios. Today, we are on the verge of another leap with the announcement of Control.”

Control’s features include:

  • It allows users with permissions to start and stop wind turbines in real-time without additional hardware on-site.
  • It can control wind turbines remotely from anywhere through Breeze, and it uses the same procedure in Breeze to start and stop wind turbines, regardless of type and manufacturer.
  • It stores control credentials for all wind turbines safely in Breeze.
  • It can control wind turbines in Breeze using two-factor authentication for the highest security.

Control is a first step toward more intelligent control of wind farms in Breeze. Using insights from data, customers can operate wind farms more efficiently and better manage challenges such as grid curtailment, unplanned downtime, and dynamic power prices.

Control is now available for select turbines in the Breeze wind-farm management system.
