eyevis UK provides 24/7 control rooms for UK wind power industry

16 October 2017

Control room video wall experts eyevis UK have won a contract to supply 24/7 monitoring technology for wind farms generating green energy for the whole of the UK.

The installation will aid the monitoring of hundreds of onshore wind turbines across the north of Scotland and work is due to start in the next couple of months.

The control room systems will also involve an integrated mobile phone camera application, which allows engineers out on site to transmit data and photographs direct to the video walls.

The project, for one of the major providers of green energy for major UK utilities and independent power providers, coincides with the country’s move towards a low carbon economy and a reduction in the reliance on fossil fuels.

eyevis UK will be supplying video walls comprising of eyevis 55-inch extremely narrow bezel industrial LCDs with eyevis Netpix 4900 video wall controllers, complete with Eyecon control software including an alarm management module.

eyevis UK managing director Steve Murphy said: “Green energy is going to play an increasing important role in the UK as we move towards deadlines for reducing our carbon emissions and reducing the economy’s reliance on fossil fuels.

“This has been highlighted by the global switch towards electric power for our cars and other vehicles, which is going to require more green energy to help meet demand.

“Video walls which provide an efficient and easy to maintain service 24/7 play an integral part in ensuring the green energy supplied by wind turbines is a reliable source of alternative energy and we are delighted to be a part of this project.”

eyevis UK provides video display and audio visual solutions to a range of clients and has supplied CCTV control rooms for power stations, local authorities, banks, road traffic monitoring, emergency services, blue chip retailers and Government buildings.

The Netpix 4900 is a network based graphic controller for the management of video wall systems, single displays or projectors.

The controller creates a big joined desktop for network-applications, video and graphic sources.

Eyecon is a universal and complete software solution for the control of video wall systems including all connected sources, distribution of information and collaboration in-between different control rooms or presentation areas.

The system is based on a very simple operating concept that reduces response times and hence makes the operation of large display systems even more effective and efficient.
