Members of our Innovation team recently visited University of Strathclyde to meet with a group of MSc Data Science students that Booth Welsh are working with on a collaborative project. The students were provided with a large, live data set from an operational Wind Turbine from OREC (Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult) for them to use to build an analytical model with the aim of being able to predict equipment failures and/or maintenance requirements.  

Discussing their experience so far, Booth Welsh Technical Innovation Business Lead, Gordon Semple commented: “The title of the project is called Predictive Maintenance & Failure Mode Analysis. This was an interim project update with the final evaluation due in 2-3 months. Some great progress made to date and looking forward to the end result and how we may be able to integrate the model with our digital solutions”
