Harnessing operational performance data and consolidating service contract experiences to configure the best O&M response strategies for your assets

The ‘Industrial Internet’ and ‘Big Data’ are just a couple of the buzz words currently circulating the onshore wind O&M space. At the project or company level these terms refer to the act of extracting, interpreting and then reapplying asset data to intelligently and efficiently inform O&M strategies. At the industry level these terms speak of a collective move towards greater data transparency and inter-market and inter-company knowledge transfers to facilitate the establishment of O&M gold standards whilst propagating technical innovation and service cost-competiveness.

The WEU Onshore O&M Strategy Configuration Report 2015 is an ambitious and innovative data-centric exercise which moves through the market, project and component levels translating performance data, technical expertise and stakeholder insight into strategic directives. From market O&M readiness, to project service option suitability and optimum component maintenance response strategy, this comprehensive study provides clear and informed takeaways for you to utilize in the pursuit to optimize output and lower costs across the project lifecycle.

In this report you will find:

  • Market O&M readiness assessment: Quantify O&M readiness in 18 global markets to gain the insight you need for negotiating risk and optimizing revenue, derived from a weighted consideration of 5 key factors and 24 sub-factors.
