Indji Watch for Wind Farm Operations provides superior awareness of significant weather events that endanger your employees, disrupt your operations and impact your profits.
Your farm can be impacted by many hazards. High wind events can cause turbine cut-outs and endanger your employees. Lightning strikes can cause major blade damage and be very costly. Having real-time hazard data, severe weather event alerts, weather forecasts and analysis tools will not only help keep your team safe, but help you plan your operation and maintenance activities, and easily identify where damage has occurred.
Icing Forecasts and Alerts
Ice accumulation on turbine blades pose significant challenges for wind farm operations and maintenance crews. Forecasts of icing from freezing rain and fog allows you to prepare and take steps to mitigate risk and increase safety.
Superior Weather Hazard Monitoring
Indji Watch provides you with accurate forecasts using data from the Global Weather Corporation, National Weather Service, NOAA high resolution models and Vaisala’s National Lightning Detection Network®, and then delivers customized hazard alerts, based on your defined warning thresholds.
The NEW Plan of Day dashboard visually offers a 24 hour forecast of multiple weather parameters allowing you to be more proactive in mitigating potential impacts to your operation and employee safety. Choose your location(s) and view the display as needed to make intelligent decisions and confidently schedule maintenance and repairs.
Intelligent Maintenance Planning
Keeping your team safe and productive is key to your operation. Weather threats such as lightning or high winds can disrupt scheduled maintenance and repairs and pose safety risks to maintenance crews. Indji Watch monitors rapidly changing weather patterns and alerts you to those threats so you can make smart decisions. Avoid downtime by scheduling jobs you know can be safely done without interruption, plan small jobs before hazardous weather will hit, or save the larger jobs until you can safely complete them.
The Indji Watch Plan of Day visual dashboard will help you easily keep track of current and upcoming changes in the weather. It is updated hourly and provides a 24 hour view of approaching weather threats, giving you the ability to quickly identify weather at-a-glance, so you can plan with confidence.
The relationship between your assets, the weather and the impact potential can be complex. Indji Watch utilized patented capabilities (U.S. Patent 10,089,854) which allow you to create intelligent business rules that will monitor your assets and trigger an alert when the weather's impact will exceed thresholds you define. Indji Watch's methods are unique to the industry where your entire asset is monitored and not just reference points on a map.
Post Event Analytic Capabilities
Lightning strikes to turbine blades can lead to degradation of the blades over time. The Indji Watch Lightning Fault Analyst will tell you if lightning occurred near your wind turbines, the distance between the strike and the turbine, the time the strike occurred and the strike amplitude. Daily reports provide an easy way of keeping track of which turbines have been struck repeatedly over time, helping you find damage early so you can make repairs before they become costly.
