Parkwind chooses SynaptiQ to monitor its offshore assets


Our SynaptiQ Wind monitoring platform and advanced SCADA data analysis toolkit will deliver independent reporting and help improve performance for the Belwind offshore wind farm. SynaptiQ Wind is built on recognized monitoring platform which has proven its value in the oil & gas industry over the last 20 years. It is already connected to 4 GW of wind capacity.
Eric Antoons, COO of Parkwind, said of the system: “We chose SynaptiQ Wind for our operations and asset management because we trust the robustness of the data collection and real-time database. We were looking for a customizable, flexible tool that would help save time in reporting. SynaptiQ answers these needs. The accurate reporting module is especially useful to our operations. It will also support our ambition to improve the operational performance of the assets by an advanced and integrated monitoring .
