Wind Energy Update and Danish Wind Power Academy Promise Valuable Lessons Learned at All New O&M Owners Workshop

The ‘Owners Only’ Pre-Conference Workshop & Networking Day is an exciting new addition to the world's #1 O&M business driven event - Wind O&M Dallas 2016 (April 11-13).

It will provide owner operators and developers with a unique opportunity to hear impressive talks and discuss critical issues such as: Site safety & Personal Protection; NERC Conference; BOP Management, Proactive Blade Maintenance & Repair, and more with their peers.

Kerr Jeferies, Project Director, Wind Energy Update, explains: "The first ever Pre-Conference Workshop and Networking Day on April 11, which is free for Owners who attend the conference, is important because it gives them the perfect opportunity to engage with like-minded specialists. In addition, they can challenge and query industry experts out of earshot from any distracting sales spiel"
"We're really excited about the incredible line-up of top quality speakers and experts who will be facilitating a workshop and round-table discussions. These will be tailored and run by senior executives from leading organisations such as AVEC, Danish Wind Power Academy, Capital Power, E.ON and EDPR."
Shawn J Lamb, CEO -US Operations at the Danish Wind Power Academy, who will be leading the opening session ‘Unlocking Human Resources' believes Owners gain tremendous benefit from networking with their peers.
"When Owners get together to discuss and benchmark their businesses, it really helps to mature the industry. Solutions and methods that work for one Owner are usually transferable to other businesses. The sharing of ‘lessons learned' can really improve performance on site," says Shawn.
Shawn also believes that the lessons from this process can be significant for small and medium Owners.
"Small to medium Owners may not have the experience, nor benefit from the economies of scale that the large IPPs and utilities and may have. Benchmarking against the larger companies can offer owners quality processes that can be quickly deployed since they have been proven already," he explains.
The US wind market is growing exponentially. Significantly, 500+ of the wind industry's top decision makers in the US will come together making Wind O&M Dallas 2016 the largest business case driven event ever.
Kerr notes: "This event is fast becoming the go-to venue for foreign companies to capture new O&M opportunities. Attendance of EU & Latin American based businesses is on the rise; and owner participation is already up 35% on last year, with anticipation growing about meeting stellar headliners and new pre-conference day opportunities."
Headliners already include names such as: Greg Wolf, President Commercial Portfolio, Duke Energy; Keith Day, President, E.ON Climate and Renewables; David Smith, CEO & President, Leeward Energy; Chris Shugart, Senior VP Operations, Pattern Energy; Andy Holt, Onshore Wind General Manager, GE along with many more.
