The OneView® upgrade provides access to new functions and facilities now and in the future, as the solution is based on the most innovative and updated technological platform on the market.

SILKEBORG, DENMARK — March 23. 2021— BayWa r.e. Wind LLC, a subsidiary of BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH, develops, builds, owns, operates, and sells wind parks across the US. They need a flexible solution that can easily be integrated with the new wind parks and disconnected again without disrupting the operation of both the park and the SCADA overlay solution.

BayWa r.e. Wind LLC has for the past 5 years used the OneView® SCADA solution from SCADA International to manage their fleet of wind parks in the US, which is comprised of turbines from various manufacturers and with different turbine types. The OneView® solution functions both as online monitoring and a reporting tool. The system currently manages 405 MW distributed on 177 wind turbines in 6 wind power plants and 8 wind turbine types.

New projects are added on an ongoing basis
BayWa r.e. Wind LLC upgraded their system to the latest generation of OneView® while adding their newest project Amadeus, located in Texas, to the portfolio – and several planned projects are on their way.“The OneView® solution can deliver the correct data in the right format, which is a key parameter in the work of optimizing the performance of our wind parks.

“The upgraded version of OneView® has several modules that ensure data of high quality across our diverse fleet of wind turbine generators. It is very important to us that the system can be scaled and constantly developed, so we have a flexible and future-proof solution that matches our new projects”, says Jörg Beland, VP Operations at BayWa r.e. Wind LLC.

Today, BayWa r.e. is a leading developer of renewable energy solutions and operates over 9 GW of renewable energy across the globe. The company invests continuously in new markets, and is, therefore, an essential partner for SCADA International.

“BayWa r.e. Wind LLC has been a valuable partner for SCADA International for the last 5 years. It is important to us to have transparency and customer dialogue, which constantly allows us to be several steps ahead in developing solutions that are both very precise and yet flexible to meet the market´s current and future requirements and needs. We greatly appreciate the collaboration and dialogue with BayWa r.e. Wind LLC, as they have provided us with great input to the reporting flow”, says Morten Bülow, General Manager Americas at SCADA International.

The OneView® SCADA solution collects data and presents it including precise calculations of downtime, lost production, and availability across energy sources. The system is flexible and can be scaled and adapted as needed, and cybersecurity is a central and integrated part of the solution´s design. SCADA International has completed more than 3,000 installations of SCADA solutions at companies within renewable energy.
