Capital Asset Optimization: Harnessing IoT Data & Predictive Maintenance

#artificialintelligence

For any business dealing with capital-intensive assets, maintaining machines and equipment is a continuous battle. From damaged equipment and undetected malfunctions to total machine failure that leads to unexpected (and costly) downtime, knowing how to future-proof your assets is a challenge. If your strategy is to only fix when something breaks, you're in a reactive mode, which often costs more and leads to extended, unplanned downtime, ultimately impacting your bottom line. Instead, what if you could know ahead of time when an asset will fail, and you could monitor your assets' health over time to determine the ideal frequency for maintenance? Predictive maintenance has emerged as a game-changing solution for asset management.


Smart Energy: A Blueprint for AI, IoT And 5G Convergence

For scale, consider the Statue of Liberty, standing 305 feet tall. At 466 feet, the average wind turbine in the U.S. dwarfs Lady Liberty by more than half. And when GE's next-generation monster wind turbine, the Haliade-X, hits the market in 2021, it will nearly double that size to 877 feet, just shy of the Eiffel Tower. A single Haliade-X rotor blade will stretch 315 feet, longer than a football field. As a general rule of thumb, when it comes to energy and energy exploration, bigger is better: the larger the machinery, the deeper the dig, the greater the production yield.

The two biggest societal challenges for the twenty-first century are also the biggest opportunities – automation and climate change. The epitaph of fossil fuels with its dark cloud burning a hole in the ozone layer is giving way to a rise of solar and wind farms worldwide. Servicing these plantations are fleets of robots and drones, providing greater possibilities of expanding CleanTech to the most remote regions of the planet.

The fifth biggest wind farm in the world has opened and will provide power to half a MILLION homes

Daily Mail - Science & tech

The fifth biggest wind farm in the world has opened off the Norfolk and Lincolnshire coast. Dubbed the Race Bank development, the wind farm is capable of powering more than half a million UK homes, according to the Danish energy firm Orsted. The turbines are the first to use the massive 250ft (75 metre) blades made at the Siemens Gamesa blade factory in Hull. With an enormous 505 foot (154 metre) wingspan, each of Race Bank's 91 turbines is larger than the London Eye.
