Optimising Wind Farms In Cold Climates

Optimising Wind Farms in Cold Climates


Do you work on wind farms in cold and difficult climates?
Do you want to join over 70 of your peers from across the globe?
Do you want to go to an event whose delegates give it a 100% rating of excellent/good ?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then you must join us in December at Windpower Monthly’s Optimising Wind Farms In Cold Climates still the only event focusing on both the commercial and technical complexities which impede on the operation of wind farms in cold and difficult climates

This year’s agenda is being shaped through in-depth research across the industry, ensuring that it focuses on the issues that matter to you including:

  • Insights into what investors perceive as risks and strategies to mitigate them in order to make a project bankable  
  • TASK19: How are the current standardisation measures being implemented and how does the future look like for sites being developed in cold climates? 
  • HIGH FREQUENCY TALKS on getting accurate data out of your wind farms and avoid unnecessary energy losses due to icing and extreme low temperatures
  • Real life experience case studies on blade performance in cold climates from developers, owner operators and OEMs
  • Technical and strategic round table discussions to collaborate, innovate and connect with key players in the cold climate community
  • Join the OEM panel discussion and ask them burning questions on realistic warranties and expectations on icing technology and blade’s lifetime
  • Find out how to exploit condition monitoring at its full potential and integrate this in effective asset management strategies
  • Hear about the latest health and safety advancements on ice throw and ice fall scenarios
  • Don't miss out on the open floor discussion on  The Case Of “Tahkoluoto Wind Farm” - The First Offshore Site In Arctic Conditions  


Join the post-forum workshop on R&D Advancements in Cold Climates 


Don't miss out on the networking dinner at the end of Day 1 to keep the discussion going in a more relaxed environment!
