Watchlist Identifying Damage Wind Turbine

DigitalClone Platform is a network of wind turbine operators and suppliers, connected through digitalization, materials science and life extension actions. DigitalClone is physics-based, simulating wind turbine drivetrain components using operational and loading conditions to predict the progression of failure. The software provides health prediction capability superior to CMS using machine learning for individual turbine major components at scale (gearbox, main bearing).
