LONDON — Cognitive Business, a provider of artificial intelligence/machine learning services to the offshore wind sector, has formed a collaboration with Weatherquest.
The duo plan to integrate Weatherquest’s API weather forecasts into the WAVES technology that RWE is currently implementing on its Robin Rigg and Rampion wind farms offshore southwest Scotland and southern England.
According to Cognitive Business, WAVES is a data-driven tool that can predict with 99.9% accuracy the safest and optimum windows for crew transfers to offshore wind platforms.
Weatherquest’s service will be integrated into the operational WAVES platform on Robin Rigg to help inform operations and maintenance decisions for wind turbines.
WAVES was developed in 2020, with funding from the Offshore Wind Growth Partnership.
Weatherquest is a privately owned weather forecasting and weather analysis company based at the University of East Anglia. It provides services in the UK and Northern Europe to offshore and onshore wind developers and ports.
