The Nordex Group, a global manufacturer of innovative onshore wind turbines, has selected Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT as a platform for digitizing its wind farms.
The Nordex Group, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, plans to connect and monitor its 6,800 existing wind turbines, using Cumulocity IoT’s platform.
Nordex supports wind turbine projects around the world that can generate huge amounts of electricity from the kinetic power of the wind, which is free of carbon emissions and can be used to meet clean energy targets as well as replace aging nuclear and coal-fired power stations. Nordex systems currently deliver more than 23 GW of sustainable energy each year and can be found in more than 80% of the world’s energy market (excluding China).
Stefan Ewald, CIO of Nordex, said: “Our wind turbines have set quality and innovation standards for decades. Being able to access the vast dataset from our wind turbines globally in real-time will enable us to generate new services and drive operational efficiency. The Nordex Group has already introduced digital products to upgrade and improve turbine performance over lifetime. We are confident that Cumulocity IoT is the best partner and product to further strengthen our digitalization strategy.”
Using Cumulocity IoT, the company will further digitize its business, offering its clients full-service monitoring that enables them to optimize the performance of their wind turbines and capture the full potential of the investments.
The IoT delivers innovation to Nordex’s business through smart technologies, connected devices, and endpoints. By combining Cumulocity IoT with wind turbines, the Nordex Group can set up a real-time remote management and centralized monitoring system, using the same software architecture from the edge to the cloud – a unique competitive advantage.
