Dissecting the cost, risk and performance characteristics of contract options within the increasingly complex O&M services landscape

With 51.5GW of new wind turbine capacity installed in 2014 and 36GW in 2013, it is clear that the wind industry requires an increasingly robust, distributed and consolidated O&M services apparatus to not only meet this cumulative growth but also to attend to the ever complex challenges which a growing and maturing industry presents. The emergence of new onshore markets, an ageing fleet in established markets, increase in turbine capacity and a diversification in owner/operator profiles has led to a boom in the services space with an increase in both volume and type of O&M service providers and service options.

In this report you will find:

  • O&M service strategy options assessment: In-house vs. extended OEM vs. ISP vs. hybrid - find out the key characteristics of each option and deployment suitability by owner/operator type and size
  • Barometer of O&M service trends: Unique insight into service option deployment share including distinctions between turbine and Balance of Plant O&M, shifts in contract lengths, contract conditions and reliability metrics, as well as anticipated service option share over the next five years
  • Stakeholder perspectives: Identify the preferences of owner/operators in the selection of service contracts including driving factors and reassessment cycle periods, as well as the deliverables offered by service providers
  • Global wind O&M market status and forecasts: The latest data on installed capacities, O&M market size and growth forecasts in all main markets worldwide.
  • Risk management and mitigation: Understand about the internalization and externalization of risk in accordance to the different O&M service options across the asset life cycle from component failure risk to health and safety risks
