Onyx secures new contracts for Pattern Energy’s 950MW wind assets

UK predictive analytics provider Onyx InSight has secured multiple new long-term contracts with US renewable power company Pattern Energy for its wind assets.

UK predictive analytics provider Onyx InSight has secured multiple new long-term contracts with US renewable power company Pattern Energy for its wind assets.

Under the contract, Onyx InSight will provide predictive maintenance services across Pattern Energy’s four wind farms, with a total capacity of 950MW, in North America.

The contracts take the total number of Pattern Energy sites under Onyx monitoring to five.

Onyx InSight Group vice-president Ashley Crowther said: “Our aim is to give project owners and operators the ability to take control of their O&M decision-making, whether that’s by scaling up our ecoCMS offering and using fleetMONITOR to remove obstacles to ‘going digital’, or by undertaking the in-depth technical analysis they need to get to grips with engineering challenges.

“Taking on responsibility for monitoring for 950MW of turbine production demonstrates the strength of the relationship we have with Pattern Energy as we collectively aim to increase uptime and reduce operations and maintenance costs.”

"For K2 and Armow wind farms located in Ontario, ONYX will connect installed vibration sensors to their hardware-agnostic asset predictive platform, fleetMONITOR."

Onyx will be installing condition monitoring systems on 234 turbines across two wind farms, and also provide monitoring and analysis of maintenance data across Pattern’s portfolio for a period of three years.
