Room: Llevant

Session description

The session covers the entire area of wind farm and wind turbine operation and maintenance, e.g. how to access, repair and organise operation and maintenance logistics onshore and offshore. In order to keep in hand the current health of turbines and farms, failure detection, identification and prognosis methods are also presented. Maintenance operations are also addressed from the viewpoints of required activities and efficiency. In order to cover management aspects, operation and lifetime cost calculation methodologies are also introduced. Experts from various European countries share their results during the session.
