WindESCo, a wind plant optimization company, has signed a distribution agreement with Deloitte to expand WindESCo’s offerings to wind assets in Spain. Deloitte will be bringing WindESCO’s two SaaS offerings – Find, Fix, Measure and Swarm to its in the region. This partnership will help accelerate the global energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables by increasing the profitability of wind energy.
With profit margins being squeezed in an increasingly competitive market and supply chain issues continuing to halt new projects, wind-farm owners and operators are turning to innovative technologies to improve the profitability of their existing fleets.
WindESCo Swarm is a patented solution for autonomous, cooperative control of wind assets. The system, licensable by OEMs and partners, enables turbines to cooperatively adjust positioning to mitigate wake effects and boost production for the entire farm by 3 to 5 percent, as well as monitor for issues such as rotor imbalance.
WindESCo’s Find, Fix, Measure is a software that uses high-resolution SCADA, rather than standard 10-minute SCADA, to detect more than 60 known issues that contribute to decreases in energy production. Find, Fix, Measure monitors for these issues.
The partnership between WindESCo and Deloitte will unlock additional megawatts for Deloitte customers in the region.
“The Deloitte energy team, led by Enrique Doheijo and Juan Pedro Gravel, is highly respected in the wind energy industry in Spain,” said Ed Wagner, chief revenue officer of WindESCo. “Together, we will be able to help customers in Spain unlock the true value of their wind projects, making renewable energy much more attractive for larger companies that are still heavily invested in oil and gas.”
“WindESCo has shown itself as a leader in energy production improvement, from its case studies and current implementations to the fact that AWS invited them to be a part of the Clean Energy Accelerator in Lisbon, Portugal, this year.” said Enrique Doheijo, director, Energy, at Deloitte Spain.
