Shoreline Wind’s software to support Ocean Winds’ global offshore wind deployment
Since its start in 2014, Shoreline Wind has made a great global impact in changing the software landscape of the wind industry. By introducing the first-ever integrated life-cycle Asset Management cloud platform, which provides solutions from early project development and analysis to complex field service optimisation in the operational phase, Shoreline Wind has seen collaborations with the world’s largest OEMs and wind project developers.
Now a new major chapter begins, as Shoreline Wind has been selected by Ocean Winds to supply their Enterprise CMMS system, that can handle the day-to-day operation of OW’s project portfolio.
For Peter Sutton, Director of O&M & Asset Management at Ocean Winds, industry knowledge, out-of-the-box integrated modules, scalability and fast onboarding were key in selecting Shoreline Wind as software supplier.
“We have successfully worked with Shoreline Wind´s Design solution on all our development projects for several years, and it was a natural choice to continue the good relationship into the execution phase for our projects. As OW portfolio will continue to accelerate its global growth, the selected EAM software would need to cope with increasingly high number of additions in projects, users, tasks and assets going forward. With a scalable foundation for all our bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind farms, we can start benchmarking and managing all assets in one platform. The first implemented project was Moray East, and we managed to successfully complete training and onboarding within a very short time frame, allowing us to quickly start maximizing asset availability”
The CMMS and Enterprise Asset Management agreement includes a global array of both bottom-fixed and floating wind projects.
Industry-changing CMMS framework signals new digital era for wind farm asset management
The agreement includes Shoreline Wind’s integrated Enterprise Asset Management module-based solution Execution that contains comprehensive functionality for asset status overview, planning and scheduling, inventory management, resource availability and much more.
For Shoreline Wind’s CCO, Michael Bjerrum, the agreement represents a great milestone for the international SaaS company, and he is excited about the collaborative future potential:
“This agreement shows that the wind industry is moving into a new digital era. Maintaining business-critical wind farm data has become far too complex and prohibit many projects from operating within the targets for cost-efficiency while improving availability. Together with Ocean Winds, we can improve the way, the wind industry defines CMMS. As a SaaS software, the CMMS solution will constantly be optimized based on the ongoing requirements and experience from Ocean Winds, but also from other market leading offshore operators and turbine OEMs in Shoreline Wind’s portfolio. A future-proof setup for enterprise asset management”.
Peter Sutton supports this statement by addressing a transition for CMMS usage in the wind industry:
“Previously, CMMS solution have mostly been developed for other energy industries like oil and gas and no offshore wind specific solution have so far been available. Offshore wind will be the fastest-growing renewable technology in the next decade, and it’s imperative for Ocean Winds to deploy projects more rapidly and to operate more efficiently. Therefore, we collaborate closely in using the software to create a unique CMMS framework”.
