Nearthlab and PowerCurve collaboration

Press release: Nearthlab and PowerCurve Team up

February 27, 2024

PowerCurve, a pioneer in aerodynamic blade performance, and Nearthlab, a leading provider of autonomous drone solutions signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) aimed at optimizing wind farm operations and maintenance (O&M).

Under the agreement, Nearthlab’s cloud-based analytics platform, Zoomable, will integrate aerodynamic performance calculation capabilities from PowerCurve’s flagship AEP analysis tool, AeroVista, into its framework. The integration will enable site managers to understand AEP loss attributed to each blade surface defect, such as leading-edge erosion identified through Zoomable.

Surface degradation on the leading edge often leads to significant power output reductions. With AeroVista integrated into Zoomable, site managers will be able to determine the impact of each defect on turbine performance, facilitating targeted maintenance and resource allocation.

“Spotting defects is one thing; understanding their financial impact is another,” said Jay Choi, co-founder and CEO of Nearthlab. “Teaming up with PowerCurve marks a significant step towards fostering an environment where wind farms can operate at their best.”

Niels Bruhn Brønnum, CEO of PowerCurve, echoed Jay’s sentiments, saying, “Driven by the shared commitment to a sustainable future, our partnership will redefine how the wind industry approaches O&M.”
