Nearthlab Expands Partnership with ONYX Insight

July 18, 2023 – Nearthlab, a leading provider of autonomous drone technology, announced that the company is scaling up its strategic partnership with ONYX Insight, a global provider of predictive maintenance solutions (PdM) beyond North America to Europe and APAC. The expansion comes a few months after the initial kick-off in March.

“The rapid evolution of our partnership is a result of growing market demand for an end-to-end maintenance solution,” said Jay Choi, co-founder and CEO. “Our integrated suite of solutions offers a unique ecosystem for maintaining turbines from blades to the drivetrain, empowering operators to streamline O&M workflows with fewer resources.”

The partnership brings together Nearthlab’s prowess in mobile drone technology and ONYX Insight’s depth of experience in turbine reliability engineering, drivetrain integration, blade health monitoring, and enterprise management systems.

“We’ve only scratched the surface as to how a holistic approach to turbine maintenance can reshape wind O&M,” said Ashley Crowther, CCO at ONYX Insight. “Together with Nearthlab, we’re working to put comprehensive maintenance capabilities in the hands of wind farms across the globe, and our continued expansion will serve as a big step forward in that very direction.”

The unprecedented collaboration between two O&M powerhouses is transforming how wind turbines are managed, with Nearthlab and ONYX Insight delivering full PdM for wind turbines, providing operators with comprehensive data which allows them to assess the health of the components in their assets. This approach enables the industry to map out effective O&M strategies for reducing downtime and minimizing risks of component failure that lead to unexpected and expensive costs.

With multiple projects underway, Nearthlab and ONYX Insight are gearing up to showcase their joint solution across APAC, Europe, and Latin America, among other regions.

Meanwhile, Nearthlab and ONYX Insight will come together later this fall to discuss the latest innovations and trends shaping the future of O&M at the upcoming Wind Turbine Technical Symposium. To RSVP for the event, visit https://onyxinsight.com/north-america-technical-symposium-2023/.
