Optimising Wind Farms In Cold Climates

Optimising Wind Farms in Cold Climates

overview

Optimising Wind Farms In Cold Climates is back in Helsinki and this year’s agenda is more exciting than ever!

This is 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.

The forum promises to bring you the most effective and ground-breaking case studies and solutions on icing standardisation measures to reduce uncertainties and energy losses whilst enhancing your project bankability potential.  

Last year’s inaugural summit was extremely well received with over 65 key industry players in attendance hailing from 12 different countries - we were thrilled to receive a 100% rating of excellent/good .

Attendee feedback is vital in shaping our conference agendas, which is why we listened and have crafted the 2015 agenda to focus on: 

  • How to reduce financial risk when developing wind farms in cold climates
  • The latest strategies to help you overcome site assessment uncertainties due to icing conditions
  • Hands-on experience on minimising energy loss in sites affected by icing
  • IEA Task 19 Panel Discussion: from ‘best practices’ to standardisation of icing measures
  • Ground-breaking advancements on ice protection systems and real impact on AEP
  • Cutting-edge strategies for optimisation, maintenance and operation of turbines in cold climates
  • The latest developments on ice throw risk scenarios and prevention
  • How to be truly prepared for offshore challenges in cold climates
