ONYX Insight, a leading independent predictive analytics solution provider, has delivered more than $340 million in savings to the wind industry through its fleetMONITOR condition monitoring software.

From its inception, the software was designed for owners of mixed assets, enabling centralized analysis of data from multiple CMS systems.

The hardware-agnostic software is built to work with any CMS system and is actively used across more than 20,000 turbines today, enabling rapid diagnostics of turbine reliability problems. Its fault database covers more than 30 turbine OEMs, allowing asset owners to anticipate major component failures 24 months in advance and use this information to extend assets’ useful life, optimize supply chain, and ultimately improve operational efficiency.

The technology has successfully collected more than 1 billion data measurements and abated more than 1 million metric tons of CO2 — the equivalent of taking 632,030 cars off the road — by avoiding the requirement for component replacements, de-risking catastrophic failures and reducing downtime.

Adopted by leading wind-energy asset owners, operators and OEMs including Pattern Energy, ERG, and bp — to name a few — fleetMONITOR is cloud-based for rapid deployment and can be seamlessly integrated to monitor data across different components and more than 15 hardware systems in one place, simplifying the increasingly complex landscape of wind-turbine operations. Further efficiencies are achieved by using the latest AI advancements to combine vibration, SCADA, oil particles, and temperature data for market-leading levels of certainty.

“Ten years ago, we spearheaded the drive toward predictive maintenance with the launch of fleetMONITOR, effectively transforming the industry approach to traditional condition monitoring,” said Won Shin, VP Product at ONYX Insight. “I am proud that we have continued this trajectory, scaling our offering to develop new innovations backed by engineering know-how to provide unparalleled visibility over the health of wind-turbine fleets, leading to a nearly 50 percent increase in turbines actively in the system in the last 12 months alone.

“Our technology sets the bar for flexibility, efficiency and quality in wind-turbine health management, and as reliability issues remain a key industry-wide challenge, our solutions have never been more relevant,” he said. “Predictive maintenance is no longer a ‘nice to have’; it’s a critical element in ensuring performance and efficiency across wind-turbine fleets, and we are proud to be a leader in this space. I look forward to the next 10 years of advancing the future of condition monitoring.”

FleetMONITOR is backed by ONYX’s experienced condition monitoring teams in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, which work as extensions of operators’ organizations, supporting them with technology transfer on their journey to in-house monitoring and ultimately greater visibility and control over their assets’ health.
