CEO Christopher Gray explains why the wind industry needs Augmented Intelligence, not AI.
We use Augmented Intelligence to analyze thousands of wind turbines with the highest level of automation.
What is Augmented Intelligence? We build technology to help industry professionals to make complex decisions more efficiently. This is the essence of Augmented Intelligence – we do not replace humans with AI, we combine software technology with human experience and intuition to create something that is smarter that AI will ever be.
The combination of wind turbine data analytics at huge scale with high automation has extraordinary potential for reducing the cost of renewable energy now and into the future.
Domain knowledge from a team of industry professionals with a wealth of experience in wind turbine operations, embedded into software technology.
Software running on cloud, automatically analysing SCADA data for a huge global fleet of wind turbines, diagnosing performance and health issues.
Prioritised insights and recommendations delivered automatically into digital workflows, to be reviewed by human experts and converted into actions.
Value generation in operational wind energy fleets through reduced downtime, increased performance and lower operational costs.
Wind turbine component failures are time-consuming to repair and result in production losses. Availability figures and full-service contracts may hide problems which will result in high costs for the owner in the long term. i4SEE assists customers by reducing failures and implementing better O&M practices.
Through continuous analysis of turbine performance, issues can be quickly detected and diagnosed. Our recommendations are delivered together with estimated financial potential, to aid prioritization. Furthermore, we provide an unbiased assessment of wind turbine upgrades, including accurate calculation of AEP change.
Industry professionals such as Asset Managers or Performance Managers are under constant time pressure as fleet sizes increase. The i4SEE approach provides painless onboarding, fully automated analysis and advice delivered directly by industry experts.
i4SEE has created a “zero effort” onboarding process for our busy customers which takes a few hours rather than weeks or months. There is no need for time-consuming IT meetings or networking complexities, which is a big relief.
With growing volumes of assets, issues and data, decision-making becomes challenging. i4SEE prioritizes all results and recommendations so that actions can be taken on the issues with greatest potential for positive gains.
“The i4SEE applications provide wind turbine operators with value at all levels. Those with less experience in data analytics will gain completely new insights into the condition of their assets. For those with more experience, the automated tools enable efficiency improvements and ensure that nothing is missed.”
“Due to the high level of automation, the i4SEE Applications are ideal for a large fleet such as ours. We are working closely together with i4SEE TECH to integrate the tools into our operational processes, providing transparency across our organisation and ensuring that priority issues are dealt with as early as possible.”
“It is a pleasure to work with the team at i4SEE and they consistently provide us with an excellent service. By combining deep knowledge in renewables with highly efficient software tools, they are able to perform complex analysis tasks extremely quickly. Their fast response and high quality results are of great value to us.”
“We have a very successful cooperation with i4SEE TECH with great results. It was very easy to setup the software and include it as part of our operational processes. Their analysis results have enabled us to detect several major component defects in our turbines, allowing us to plan proactively and avoid expensive failures.” Read the Case Study.
“In cooperation with i4SEE, Eolus has established a process which uses data analytics to ensure maximum turbine performance. i4SEE supports our team of technical managers with analysis applications and domain expertise, enabling us to swiftly investigate and report on issues. This increases the team’s efficiency and helps us to manage even more assets in the Nordic region.”
“Historically, the operation of our turbines has been very much a black box, but we are now determined to look inside, though worried that we might drown in data. i4SEE’s systems will make sense of all the disparate data streams and allow us to see what matters, and what we need to do when.”
“We asked the team at i4SEE to analyse a wind farm which had been experiencing a shortfall in output over the past few years. They correctly identified the root cause issue and gave us the answers and the action plan that we needed. We have found the work of i4SEE to be efficient, reliable and accurate and we can highly recommend them to anyone in the industry.”
“We turned to i4SEE for SCADA data analysis, since there is so much to be learned from the data and i4SEE’s efficient analytics provide a valuable extension to our offering.”
“As an operator of renewable energy assets, i4SEE answers your main question: Does every wind turbine perform as I expect it to? i4see provides this information at a detailed level every month. You could only achieve this yourself with enormous effort. The product is constantly developed in close collaboration with the customer. A recommendation for everyone who wants to know exactly.”
At i4SEE we pride ourselves in our wealth of wind energy know-how. All members of our multidisciplinary management team are passionate about the wind industry and have accumulated decades of experience across hundreds of wind farms.
I founded i4SEE with the aim of bringing a great team together and building digital technology that changes the way data analytics can be used to optimize huge fleets. With our pragmatic and lean approach, we aim to provide our customers with a very high return on their investment in our services.
To keep pace with customer demands on software functionality and time-to-market expectations, we rapidly develop efficient, high-quality code. Our tools bring huge benefits through automation and digitalization, and we also offer our clients assistance in the adoption of agile techniques, helping them to move toward optimized and less stressful asset management.
The renewable industry needs to scale up fast to overcome the climate crisis, but dealing with such growth results in many new challenges for the wind turbine fleet operator. With limited time and resources, the right tools and processes must be in place so that priority issues can be dealt with early and efficiently. At i4SEE we help our clients to achieve this, freeing them from daily firefighting and allow them to focus on whatever is most important at the time.
The wind industry needs modern tools, flexibility and smart digital strategy. Sustained increases in availability and reliability make a huge difference to the bottom line. We are skilled at keeping the focus on overall optimization and pursuing financial gains, while still having the tenacity to solve even the trickiest engineering problems.
The i4SEE approach is highly agile and pragmatic. We combine disparate data sources with our domain knowledge to produce insightful results. We work quickly and do not lose sight of the fact that when a wind farm is underperforming, every day that goes by results in lost energy that can never be recaptured.
