This year's 10th annual Wind Operations Dallas will see Natural Power's Senior Vice President in North America, Holly Burnett, chair the Asset, Risk and Performance Optimization track on April 17th followed by the Fleet Digitization track on April 18th. Holly will also participate in a panel discussion focused on the return-on-investment of data analytics and management. A long-time participant in this event, Natural Power was last years' recipient of the Most Exciting Industry Newcomer 2017 for wind project operations.
Holly said: "We are committed to engaging in conversations with others in the industry to help establish best practices and continually redefine operational excellence. The collaborative discussions that happen at events such as Wind Operations Dallas are critical to advancing industry norms and shared understandings alike."
Wind Operations Dallas 2018, which takes place at the Westin Galleria, has grown throughout the past 10 years to become the world's largest gathering of wind operations, asset management and data analytics decision makers. Delegates will hear from more than 100 hand-picked industry experts, network with more than 200 owner operators, utility, IPP and developers, and walk an innovation showcase of more than 75 booths.
