Nordex has selected SoftwareAG’s Cumulocity IoT platform to manage its vast international fleet of wind turbines.
The company has 6,800 turbines around the world generating huge amounts of clean energy from the wind. Nordex’s systems deliver more than 23 GW of sustainable energy per year in over 80 percent of the world’s energy market (excluding China).
Managing an increasing number of turbines is a challenge. Nordex is turning to SoftwareAG and its Cumulocity IoT platform for assistance.
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 digitalisation strategy.”
Cumulocity IoT is an open and independent, device-agnostic platform supporting more than 150 pre-integrated devices and 300+ industrial protocols. It is fully distributed and available across cloud, on-premises, and edge.
Sanjay Brahmawar, CEO of Software AG, commented:
“The energy sector is highly competitive. 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.
IoT delivers innovation to the Nordex business through smart technologies, connected devices, and endpoints. We are very happy to support our partner in serving the needs of their customers even better.”
Clean energy generation is more important than ever. Leading scientists believe we are reaching the point of no return when it comes to climate change.
During this week’s COP24 meeting of world leaders to tackle climate change, Sir David Attenborough warned: “We are facing a man-made disaster of global scale, our greatest threat in thousands of years – climate change.”
“If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilisations – and the extinction of much of the natural world – is on the horizon.”
