GE Power Conversion and BLP Industry.AI have signed a Memorandum of Understanding under which the parties agree to work together to provide next generation AI technology and asset performance management solutions to enable wind farm operators to maximise asset availability and reliability.

GE Power Conversion expects to make the most of the technical expertise available at its Power Conversions Engineering Design Centre, in Chennai, India, which will design the asset performance management solutions for sector specific applications in renewables, marine and metals on a global basis.

BLP Industry.AI (Industry.AI) is a subsidiary of Bharat Light & Power and is a renewable energy generation and technology company. Its business is to  accelerate digital transformation across industries and has a much experience in big data analytics and advanced electrical analytics.

The two companies propose to bring together Industry.AI’s intelligent EDGE software, and its proprietary Orion platform – the operating system for AI and IoT – with GE Power Conversion’s Asset Performance Management (APM) solution.

André Borouchaki, chief technology officer, GE Power Conversion, commented, “Bringing together GE Power Conversion’s advanced digital industrial technologies and APM solution combined with Industry.AI’s ‘Orion’ platform will help wind farm operators to gain relevant data and insights to maximise their asset availability and reliability, ultimately helping the asset owners to reduce their costs and improve returns.”
