In cold climates, icing events and long periods with extreme low temperatures may impact the behaviour of standard wind turbines and this reverberates negatively on economics and safety of the wind farm. The behaviour of wind turbines operating in cold climates is studied at an international level by the IEA Wind TCP Task 19, a group of experts, of which Sirris is the representative member for Belgium.

More and more companies are starting proactive or predictive maintenance projects and they are looking how to optimise their operations thanks to the enormous amount of data they collect. However, these companies mainly focus on the individual machine level, leaving a huge potential for fleet-based analytics untapped.

Before proceeding with in-depth data analysis, you first need to ensure that the data you have available is suited for solving your business problem. Data exploration is a first step in the data science workflow. It helps you to find out if the data you have available is suited for the problem you want to study. Our training session on data exploration helps you on your way.

By May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have to be implemented by all companies collecting and processing personal data. This new legislation reinforces the data subject’s rights and privacy when it comes to the processing of his/her personal data. This will change how we innovate with data.
