WINDPOWER 2016 - ABB to host Wind Farm Best Practices forum prior to AWEA Windpower 2016

ABB, in conjunction with the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), will once again host a free pre-show technical training seminar next week on the latest technologies and best practices prior to the start of AWEA Windpower 2015.

Dallas, Texas, May 16, 2016 - Free pre-show afternoon technical training and best practices seminar on May 23 will focus on electrical balance of plant and life cycle management for wind farm applications.

ABB, in conjunction with the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), will once again host a free pre-show technical training seminar next week on the latest technologies and best practices prior to the start of AWEA Windpower 2015.
The three-hour training session will take place on Monday afternoon, May 23 in Meeting Room 270 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans from 1:00 to 4:00 pm CDT, just prior to the grand opening of the 2016 AWEA Windpower Conference & Exhibition.
The educational session will cover two key areas impacting the wind industry: grid integration and life cycle management. Wind experts will share technical insights on trends and technologies for overcoming challenges facing the industry today.
"Many wind plants in the US have now been operating for over 10 years and not always performing to their potential, but there are converter upgrades and retrofits that can greatly improve efficiencies and grid code compliance. We plan to talk in-depth about life cycle management and electrical balance of plant opportunities, as well as best practices and hands on training that is really practical for wind operators," said Dennis McKinley, ABB director of wind power solutions in North America. "We are honored to again host this pre-show training seminar that allow wind farm owners, operators and engineers to come together in a non-commercial venue to get a first-hand look at what is working now and what's available."
AWEA Windpower 2016 will run from May 23-26 in New Orleans, and ABB will be exhibiting in booth #3439.
