The largest operating wind farms for both bottom fixed and floating foundation technologies are located in Europe, the world’s leader in offshore wind. The capacity of Europe’s offshore energy sources is sufficient to meet the continent’s rising electricity demand in the future years.
The goal of the Offshore Wind O&M conference is to discuss new ways to reduce O&M expenses and improve asset management. It will look at techniques for extending the asset lifecycle, monitoring turbine performance, and effectively using data to reduce potential operational hazards and costly downtime. The programme will examine the difficulties and prospects of successful maintenance and asset management, with an emphasis on maintenance cost reduction, supply chain optimization, predictive maintenance, and asset lifespan extension.
