EDF Renewables generates 16 gigawatts of grid-scale power across North America from solar storage and wind energy. EDF deployed AVEVA’s PI System to monitor operations. When a turbine goes down, EDF uses data from the PI System combined with external weather forecasts and crew schedules to estimate potential lost revenue and balance this against the costs of sending an after-hours maintenance crew. This visibility helps EDF make better decisions about when to do an after-hours call-out.
“This whole platform is designed to support our goals of operational intelligence. The idea is, you build systems that take raw data and turn it into actionable information so you can make smarter decisions.”
David Rodriguez Sr., Analytics and Intelligence Engineer, EDF Renewables
- Combine the AVEVA™ PI System™ operations data with wind forecasts and maintenance crew schedules to inform call-out decisions.
- Need to determine whether potential revenue lost from turbine outages merits the cost of an after-hours maintenance call-out.
- Expected savings of $2 million per year in reduced maintenance expenses.
