GE Power Conversion, a subsidiary of General Electric, has signed a pact with BLP Industry.AI to provide asset performance management solutions to wind farm operators.
The two companies would bring together their expertise and use BLP Industry.AI’s intelligent EDGE software, and its proprietary “Orion” platform, the operating system for artificial intelligence and internet of things, with GE Power Conversion’s asset performance management (APM) solution, said the companies in a joint press release.
BLP Industry.AI is a subsidiary of Bharat Light & Power (BLP), a renewable energy generation and technology company.
“GE Power Conversion’s APM technology – which can unify high frequency data – and GE’s strength in power conversion technology, alongside Industry.AI’s experience in providing advanced analytics to the renewables sector, will help wind farm owners increase generation, reduce costs and improve returns,” said Tejpreet S Chopra, founder and chief executive officer, BLP.
André Borouchaki, chief technology officer, GE Power Conversion, said bringing together the expertise of the companies would help wind farm operators to gain relevant data and insights to maximize their asset availability and reliability, thereby ultimately helping the asset owners to reduce their costs and improve returns.
