Neoen, a leading renewable project developer and owner, has chosen QOS Energy’s innovative O&M management platform to monitor the performance of the 315 MW Hornsdale wind project, which will be one of the largest wind farms operating in Australia once it’s fully commissioned.
The project, consisting of 96 Siemens 3.2 MW wind turbines, is being built in three stages; two of which have been completed. Neoen has deployed Qantum®, the IEC compliant energy management SaaS powered by QOS Energy, to monitor the two first stages of the project.
One main benefit for Neoen is the fact that no additional hardware or system installation is required onsite to run the software, which allows for a swift and cost effective set-up of data-acquisition processes. The platform gathers and analyzes data generated by each turbine for all measured values using a secure VPN connection. Qantum is compatible with every kind of wind turbine, communication standard, or database-connection protocol.
“We are very proud of the successful collaboration we have with Neoen for this important project,” said Fabrice Wacogne, chief customer success officer at QOS Energy.
Neoen can customize operating dashboards, analysis, KPIs, alerts, reports, or contracts depending on its specific needs. The engineering team of QOS Energy has delivered bespoke performance indicators and KPIs for the whole wind farm, and custom operating dashboards have been delivered for each user type.
