About The Event

With new wind installations in the US forecast to slow down beyond the end of 2012, the onus for optimizing the performance of existing assets has increased. Developers are looking at shifting more resources towards the O&M side of their business, whilst for OEMs, a softening sales market is enhancing the need for maintaining exceptional after-sales services and performance.

The 4th Annual Optimizing Wind Power O&M conference returns as an interactive and intimate setting for addressing your critical operational challenges, with a keen focus on real experiences and enhancement of O&M strategy.

The agenda is designed around the key factors that can improve the operational performance of your projects:

  • Are you involved with equipment that is coming out of warranty?
  • Can you share your experiences with implementing a predictive approach to maintenance?
  • Do you oversee a data analysis team that has achieved breakthroughs in advancing your wind asset management strategy?
  • Is your company achieving improved reliability and reductions in down-time?
  • Have you successfully conducted retrofits or repowering on older wind farms?

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Brian Hayes, Executive Vice President, Asset Operations, EDP Renewables, North America
  • Dan Brake, Technical Services General Manager, Renewables, NextEra Energy Resources
  • Gerrud Wallaert, Regional Operations Manager, Midwest / Northeast, E.ON Climate and Renewables
