Share Article

In little under a month, the first-ever Wind O&M Forum with an exclusive dual focus on onshore and offshore will take place in Hamburg, the principal location for operational wind facilities and service specialists.

More than 120 senior level wind industry executives – already comprised of over 45% operators – have begun to engage with one another in preparation for their arrival at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Hamburg for the 5th Annual Wind O&M Forum for Power Producers (February 18-20, 2013).

Delegates are gearing up to gain exclusive insight into the very latest industry post warranty experience, proven technology and O&M strategies which will maximize generation and reduce costs in wind farms they are associated with globally. Topics to be covered include the very latest end of warranty options (EOW), data analysis and modelling for improved and enhanced performance, major part failure, advanced monitoring technologies for both onshore and offshore facilitates.

With the volume of existing onshore wind assets and the rate of construction of offshore wind parks, European Utilities and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) will have pay particular attention to their Wind Farm aftercare strategies in an effort to lower operational expenditure (OPEX) and ultimately drive profitability from the assets already in operation. In response to this shift in the industry, manufacturers and other O&M specialists have started to offer extremely valuable technologies and competitive packages for wind farm aftercare that could help significantly increase an operator’s return on investment (ROI). The question on the end of every asset owner’s tongue is what works, and where to find it.

“Wind Energy Update is proud to be the primary source of exclusive, industry demanded information surrounding post warranty life” says Jon Harman, the Head of Renewable Industries from Wind Energy Update. “As an organization, 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”.

Acciona Energia Portugal, Agder Energi Produksjon, Allianz Capital Partners, Arctic Wind, Axpo Power AG, Belwind, BKW Energie, BKW Italia Spa, Chevron, DONG Energy, E.ON Climate & Renewables, Eneco Wind, Enel Green Power SpA, Energie SpA, Erg Renew, European Energy, GDF Suez Energy Europe, HgCapital, Juwi, London Array, NoordzeeWind, RWE Innogy, RWE Npower Renewables, Scottish and Southern Energy, ScottishPower Renewables, and Vattenfall are just a few of the European wind industry companies who will meet next month in Hamburg to discuss, debate and appraise the latest O&M strategies to reduce costs, optimize efficiency, and improve overall ROI.
