Renewable energies company Acciona Energía has signed an agreementwith US-based industrial software firm Sentient Science to help extend the operational life of global wind turbine fleet.
Under the terms of the deal, the Acciona will assess the possible use and validate the Sentient’s DigitalClone Live technology.
If feasible, Acciona will use the software to detect potential key components failures in wind turbine years before they occur. This is expected to reduce energy cost for the company.
Acciona Energía CEO Rafael Mateo said: “We are very proud to be the first major European wind power operator to use the Sentient Science’s reputed technology in our assets.
