Once a wind farm is operational, adopting a cost-effective operations and maintenance strategy is the main path for operators to maximize ROI on wind energy. The report will deliver concrete data and insight into several related areas of operations and maintenance for wind farms.

Overhaul your operations and maintenance strategies to secure asset profitability in a low-subsidy environment

The way O&M is managed is evolving as we edge closer to a low-subsidy market. Operators no longer need to think about O&M exclusively in terms of maximizing ROI through maintenance cost reduction strategies but should be considering it as a potential revenue generation stream through the adoption of novel technologies and contractual arrangements. This is informing decisions around what maintenance should be done and by whom whilst shaking-up the O&M services offering landscape.

New Energy Update’s Wind O&M Report 2018 provides you with the data and analysis you need to navigate this shifting marketplace and formulate the most cost-effective O&M strategies for your wind power assets.

  • Identify the optimum maintenance strategy for gearboxes, generators and blades

    Use NEU’s proprietary scorecards to select the optimum maintenance strategy for your assets and make an informed cost-performance decision

  • Benchmark your wind assets’ reliability against your peers

    Access two exclusive real-time data sets from report partner WEBS on failure rates and repair times for key components across turbine technologies and classes

  • Benchmark your investment strategy

    Consult our global 2018 Onshore O&M Survey to determine where your clients and competitors are going to be focussing their attention over the next five-years within the O&M marketplace
