Fluitec Wind CEO Frank Magnotti is scheduled to speak at the SXSWEco Conference in Austin, TX today. As one of the six finalists in the Cleanweb category, Fluitec will share its proprietary Big Data Analytic Platform for Wind Turbines.
The SXSWEco conference is centered on furthering innovation and action around sustainability initiatives. In the same way that other SXSW events have influenced tech trends, debuted Oscar-winning films and launched globally successful musical artists, SXSWEco aims to lead the way to innovative business solutions around sustainability and climate change.
Fluitec Wind is a clean technology company focused on decreasing the cost of wind turbine operations and maintenance through advanced data analytics. Fluitec has amassed a global database of operational, genetic and diagnostic data from turbines representing 10GW or 25,000 turbine years. Without any additional capital expense, without any new sensors and monitoring systems, and with the massive existing data a turbine operator has, Fluitec can predict specific failures to within 3 months. This allows for significant reduction in costly unscheduled maintenance and more effective scheduled maintenance.
"The typical return on this kind of an investment is 5-10 x, and with the savings gained working with us, can add 1-2% profitability to the bottom line of turbine operators,” Magnotti said.
Fluitec Wind's parent company, Fluitec, SA, provides condition monitoring, advanced filtration equipment and additives to extend the life of lubricants and increase the availability of rotating machinery. Fluitec products are in nuclear, coal, and gas power generation facilities in over 40 countries.
