WindPower 2016 - ScottMadden to Discuss Generation Fleet Performance at North America's Largest Wind Energy Conference

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North Americas leading energy consulting firms, will soon join wind energy thought leaders as a speaker at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) WINDPOWER conference being held May 23–26 in New Orleans, LA. This leading annual event gathers thousands of professionals from all major segments in the industry, bringing together policy makers and thought leaders for collaboration.

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North Americas leading energy consulting firms, will soon join wind energy thought leaders as a speaker at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) WINDPOWER conference being held May 23-26 in New Orleans, LA. This leading annual event gathers thousands of professionals from all major segments in the industry, bringing together policy makers and thought leaders for collaboration.


At this event, Todd Williams, partner at ScottMadden, will discuss the concept of a playbook or model for effective management. Wind operators will learn how to leverage scale by adopting leading practices across their asset base using a proven model deployed by many large, conventional generation fleets. Additionally, ScottMadden will display a poster in the AWEA poster hall highlighting a case study where we helped one wind operator apply the concepts of a playbook to their wind safety function.

"The value of a generation fleet can be greater than the sum of its individual generation assets. Top performance is not automatic or self-sustaining, it needs a mechanism for continuous improvement. We believe that given the size of the U.S. wind fleet, wind generation has reached an inflection point, and owners can benefit from implementing an operational playbook," said Mr. Williams.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
