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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
