Wind turbine operators will be able to adjust different wind turbines with one type of software, say the makers of a new technology system.

The two Spanish energy companies, Gamesa and Iberdrola, say it means turbines can be managed from anywhere in the world.

Normal turbine software can be controlled remotely. What makes the new software unique, they say, is because it works with any make of turbine.

It can supervise the ‘real-time’ weather conditions which affect wind turbines’ performance such as wind speed and temperature, as well as maintenance.
