Denmark’s Dong Energy has started using an app-based system to streamline maintenance operations at its Horns Rev 2 wind farm in the North Sea.
The SAP Work Manager makes it possible for the
offshore technicians to register all repair and inspection activities for wind
turbines directly on site, eliminating double work capturing data, reducing
incorrect inputs and speeding up related supply chain processes.
“The benefits are better data quality, quicker
reaction time from observed error to planned repair; better hand-over from service
team to service team, quicker process from performed service until the order is
closed and better transparency for Dong Energy’s central functions,” says
project manager Annette Norager-Nielsen.
Dong and SAP have accelerated roll out of the app –
six months from configuration and development to going live.
Thirty maintenance technicians are using the app in
its first roll-out, with plans to app-up 400 more at sites in the UK and
