SCADA International launches an all-in-one SCADA solution to secure long-term investments for minor park owners, the OneView® Park Retrofit. Technology upgrades are essential to go beyond the lifetime of a wind asset – 20 to 25 years – and ensure its efficiency. Thus, the OneView® Park Retrofit supports owners to update their obsolete technology and benefit from high-quality data extraction, reducing the hurdle of cost and complexity of a SCADA system replacement.

The likelihood that poor data quality is extracted might increase exponentially when wind assets and their technology are aging. The SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system is a crucial tool for monitoring and controlling the turbine and data collection, enabling direct and constant flow of asset information. Therefore, a precise and trustworthy turbine status overview becomes a priority to optimize daily operations and reduce the cost of energy.

By upgrading outdated SCADA equipment, the all-in-one solution, OneView® Park Retrofit, allows owners to ensure a complete and detailed asset status overview. Concretely, the OneView® Park Retrofit can process various data to calculate or provide relevant operational information, as well as to support in planning maintenance. Wind assets require a significant initial investment, so it is critical to prevent any incident that might end up into monetary losses — such as breakdown, downtime and production loss.

Age, repairs, or system updates influence exponentially the SCADA system’s functionalities, as well as its capability to integrate with other systems. The OneView® Park Retrofit assures accurate extracted data, service and production optimization, and fast reaction towards unforeseen events.

“To avoid losses, both turbine technology and spare parts should be revised periodically. In practice, the lack of proactivity and quality data may bring owners into complex situations — especially in minor wind farms. OneView® Park Retrofit supports owners to avoid the obsolescence of their technology and optimize their asset performance,” says Jan Lindholt Nielsen, Director and Chief Specialist.

The solution comprises specific turbine controlling features to comply with existing grid, noise and shadow-flicker regulations, as well as adjust to bird and bat movements. Encompassing a significant increase in the functionalities of the system, the OneView® Park Retrofit will ultimately bring higher flexibility to asset owners — including multiple organizational stakeholders — to manage the wind fleet easily based on their specific needs.
