United Utilities Renewable Energy (UURE) owns and operates upwards of 60 renewable technology assets across the North West of England, including solar photovoltaic, hydro and wind turbines. Many of the solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are mounted on the ground, meaning management of nearby organic growth is an important part of the overall Operations & Maintenance strategy and is key to ensuring the safe and efficient on-going output of the system.
Using AI for Interrogating Regulatory Documents
When an engineer develops or modifies a nuclear safety case or regulation, there is a need to consider a significant and complex array of regulatory and reference material. A solution, which could include Artificial Intelligence (AI), is sought to support the engineer to increase productivity, significantly reduce the time required to produce the safety case or regulation (>50%) and increase the confidence in the proposed safety case or regulations. The challenge is to develop/offer smart systems that can look in to historical and current data/regulations, interpret a solution for the desired outcome and compile relative regulations and arguments to support.
