The Wind Energy Association estimates China has about one-third of the world's total installed wind capacity

Universal mCloud Corp (CVE:MCLD) (OTCMKT:MCLDF), the AI and IoT group, announced Monday it will provide performance analytics to a wind-farm operator in China.  

The Vancouver-based company said the commercial agreement is with Longyuan Construction Investment (Chengde) Wind Power Co Ltd. 

Under its AssetCare for Wind technology, Universal mCloud will assess and optimize the condition and performance of pitch systems and batteries for 35 GE wind turbines at Longyuan's Pu Fa Wind Farm. 

Universal mClound said the agreement is the start of what is expected to be a multi-phase relationship with Longyuan.

"We look forward to demonstrating the power of AssetCare to Longyuan and helping them maximize the performance of their wind turbine fleet," said Dave Weinerth, mCloud President, Smart Energy. "By connecting these wind turbines to our AI and analytics capabilities, we are confident we will discover how to achieve better performance for these wind turbines, positioning AssetCare for more turbines in their portfolio."

Weinerth noted that the World Wind Energy Association estimates China has approximately one-third of the world's total installed wind capacity and “with over 19,000 megawatts, Longyuan is China's largest wind farm developer and operator.”

Using historical performance data for these wind turbines, mCloud’s AssetCare technology will apply its AI and analytics to evaluate numerous pitch parameters including motor temperature, position, current, and torque along with performance variables such as wind speed, power output, and turbine mode. 

By detecting excessive rotational force or control system issues, the AssetCare technology can predict the impact on annual energy production and turbine longevity. By improving wind energy production while reducing costs associated with operations and maintenance, AssetCare can increase Longyuan's profitability per megawatt-hour.
