Horizon users with editor permissions have the ability to update the Turbine Make, Model, and Status of multiple turbines at once. This may be helpful when updating an entire site's make and model information. This article explains the benefit of keeping this information updated in Horizon and how to update these fields in bulk.
Why track turbine Make/Model/Status in Horizon
Keeping the Make/Model/Status of turbines updated in Horizon can be beneficial in several ways.
Updating Make/Model information for turbines allows for an accurate depiction of the distribution of turbine types within your fleet. Additionally, individuals making assessments on inspection-identified damages can take the Make/Model into consideration when it is indicated for each turbine. For Horizon subscription customers, the use of Analytics allows you to track damage trends and propagation based on the specific Make/Models that have been updated in Horizon.
The Status for each turbine allows you to track which turbines are currently online/offline across a particular site or fleet. The cause for the turbine being offline can be tracked via tasks and work orders, and when used in tandem with Analytics, you have can an accurate view into which assets are offline, how long they've been offline, and the repairs required to return the asset to service. Keeping the status of turbines updated in Horizon enables your team to have a better grasp of fleetwide turbine availability.
How to select the turbines to update
To update multiple turbines at once, navigate to the Fleet Module in Horizon and select the Turbines tab.
If you are interested in updating all turbines from a specific site, enter the site name in the search bar and press Enter. Then, select the turbines you are interested in updating using the check boxes to the left of the turbine name.
If you would like to update all turbines at the site, check the box to the left of the header of the Turbine column.
To update the Make, Model, and or Status of these turbines, click the "Edit Selected" Icon in the top right of the table to open the update panel.
From the update panel, select which fields you would like to update by clicking the "Enable" check boxes on the left. Leave these unchecked if you do not wish to make changes. Then, add the new values you would like to update these fields to or toggle the status between online/offline. Note: this will override and replace the previous data listed in Make/Model/Status for the turbines being updated.
Once you have the details you would like to update listed, click "Edit X items" to finalize the changes. This will update the details for all the selected turbines.
You may choose to turn the map feature off to see all of the columns in the table. Click the toggle for Show Map in the upper right of the screen to turn off the map. There is also the option to scroll at the bottom of the table if you cannot seen all the available fields.

If you are looking to develop a standard naming conventions for your turbine make/models, reach out to SkySpecs and we'd be happy to share out best practices for naming conventions.
At the moment make and model updates to blades from the user side are not available, but SkySpecs is evaluating future updates on this. If Horizon users wish to also update blade make-model specific information, this can be executed as well by contacting SkySpecs at email@example.com.
