O&M cost strategies revealed to Europe's wind industry

14 Operators will gather to discuss their O&M strategies at the 6th International Onshore and Offshore Wind O&M Forum in Hamburg, the ‘hub' for operational wind facilities and service specialists.

More than 200 senior level wind industry executives – already comprised of operators, OEMs, ISPs and technology specialists – have begun to engage with one another in preparation for their arrival at the 6th International Onshore and Offshore Wind O&M Forum (27-28 January 2014).


Delegates are geared up to gain exclusive insight into the very latest industry O&M strategies which will maximise production and reduce unnecessary costs in wind farms they are associated with internationally.

In two separate streams, discussions on one side will focus on onshore turbine related issues and on the other will examine offshore specific topics. These include the very latest management structures, blade care, supply chain strategy, substructure maintenance, retrofit technology, advanced monitoring, life extension and logistics.

With the uncertainty that surrounds the continuation of various European subsidies, Utilities and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) will now turn their attention to lower operational expenditure (OPEX) and ultimately drive profitability from the assets already in operation.

"Wind Energy Update is proud to be the primary source of exclusive, industry demanded information surrounding O&M" says Jon Harman, the Managing Director from Wind Energy Update. "As an organisation, we understand how to drive both a company's growth and profits, and we will strive to provide the audience with the targeted material and individuals that they need to achieve them".

E.ON Climate & Renewables, Axpo Power, EDP Renováveis, EnBW, ENERGIEKONTOR, Erg Renew, ESB, Juwi, Parkwind NV, Vattenfall are just a few of the wind industry companies who will meet next January to discuss, debate and appraise the latest O&M strategies to reduce costs, optimise efficiency, and improve overall ROI.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
