Wind Turbine IoT Remote Management
Renewable energy generation by wind turbines is a key area for the use of 4G data sim cards and 4G IoT M2M Routers. Renewable energy assets are very often in remote areas for the generation of electricity. Renewable energy generation by wind turbines is a rapidly growing industry in the UK and around the world. Renewable energy assets require secure remote connectivity to control their operation and maintaiance.
In the case of wind turbines these very often need to be monitored remotely. The constantly changing operation of wind turbines to maximise the performance of the turbine based upon, for example, wind speed means that data needs to be constantly monitored both for efficiency and security. If the blades spin too fast they could become damaged and stop producing renewable energy. By utilising a 4G Router with 4G Fixed IP SIM card the wind turbine can be monitored remotely and the assets can be secured.
Wind turbines are very often located in remote areas where there are no BT Openreach lines. Installing fixed line broadband is not an option due to the cost of installation. Installing a 4G router with a Fixed IP Roaming sim card and external 4G antenna on the outside of the turbine to pick up the best signal is the optimum solution to remotely manage a wind turbine. 1-3GB is often enough data to successfully manage the turbine effectively.
