EDP Renewables North America to use Dingo’s Trakka ® software tool

EDPR-Houston-1.jpgDingo, a leader in Asset Wellness®, announced recently that EDP Renewables North America has issued Dingo an order for a license of Trakka®, Dingo's cloud-based predictive analytical and workflow  maintenance management software.  This license includes the Trakka® Core Data Analysis and the Condition Intelligence® Modules.

 Headquartered in Houston, Texas, EDPR North America maintains offices and wind farms across North  America.  EDPR NA currently operates over 3,800 MW with 29 wind farms in the U.S. and Canada.

 This order from EDPR represents Dingo's continued growth in the wind energy sector by working with one of  the  major wind park owner/operators with a mixed OEM fleet.  EDPR engineering staff will use Trakka® to  proactively monitor turbine condition for their post-warranty turbine fleet in the U.S. Additionally, EDPR is  utilizing Trakka's document storage functionality to record inspection reports, gearbox teardowns, oil  sampling  procedures and boroscope inspection reports.  With the addition of this most recent order, Dingo  now monitors  14GW of wind power capacity in Trakka®.

Paul Higgins, Dingo Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to announce this agreement with EDP Renewables North America.  This partnership is an important part of Dingo's continued strategic expansion into energy markets.  As thousands of wind turbines transition out of initial warranty, ways to manage long term Asset Wellness™ are becoming more important than ever to the wind industry."
