Real Data And Independent Analysis To Help You Maximize ROI on Your Wind Power Assets
Once a wind farm is operational, adopting a cost-effective operations and maintenance strategy is the main path for operators to maximize ROI on wind energy. The report will deliver concrete data and insight into several related areas of operations and maintenance for wind farms.
Key Questions Answered In This Report Include:
- What are the failure rates of key components on different turbine types and capacities?
- When is it more cost effective to carry out O&M in-house rather than working with OEMs or ISPs?
- How are other companies reducing their O&M costs whilst delivering better wind farm performance?
- Under which circumstances is it cost-effective to invest in condition monitoring systems, rather than carry out scheduled O&M?
- What is the O&M market size?
- What is the re-power market size?
- What is the retrofit market size?
- What are the end of warranty options for operators, when should they consider repowering or retrofitting?
- How can I avoid catastrophic failure of gearboxes, generators or blades through best O&M practice?
- What are the main causes of turbine failure and how can I prevent them?
