12:00 - 13:30 The O&M impact on LCOE – How to get costs down?
This session shall focus on the challenge of reducing the Cost of Energy from wind parks through intelligent O&M.
What can be done from a Life Cycle perspective to ensure the O&M costs are minimised in respect to the highest possible RoI for investors?
The session will be devided in two parts: the first part will feature five presentations about opportunities and practical solutions for O&M cost reductions; in the second part four leading wind turbine manufacturers will share their experiences and outline their strategy to achieve cost reductions in O&M .
Please note that the session will be extended by 15 minutes and will therefore finish at 13:45 instead of 13:30.
