Optimise your O&M strategy by identifying the true costs, downtimes and failure rates of modern and future wind farms

A unique insight into what the true costs and downtimes are for offshore wind farm O&M and unearth the component failure rates that continue to affect your OPEX

With rapidly evolving technology, new product offerings, a challenging marine environment and rapidly growing installed capacity as well as wind park nominal capacity come serious operation and maintenance challenges. Combine this with unpredictable component failures, the limited number of servicing vessels, the challenging park accessibility and the debatable reliability of new rolled-out turbines make ensuring a cost effective offshore operations and maintenance strategy is in place has never been more difficult

This report unearths the true costs of predictive and corrective maintenance, the real hours lost to downtime and actual component failure rates, to allow you to build the best strategies and systems for cost effective operations and maintenance.
