Drivetrain Components Reliability And Optimisation Forum

Drivetrain Component Reliability Forum And Optimisation Forum

Join us this month AND ENHANCE THE RELIABILITY OF YOUR WIND TURBINE

Click below for an exclusive Windpower Monthly article from two of our top level speakers, Pieter Jan Jordaens and Jan Helsen of OWI-Lab: 
Uncovering the connection between the environmental conditions at a wind farm and the effect on the turbines

Make sure that you book on, for your opportunity to speak to Pieter and Jan, and learn more about the work they are doing

This NEW event in our growing portfolio promises to bring you the latest in turbine component developments along the breadth of the supply chain – through manufacturing, construction and O&M .

We will be delving specifically into crucial issues related to the core turbine components , with a focus on the gearbox, generator, main bearing and power converter.

All with the aim of extending their life span to keep up with increased turbine longevity , reduce the likelihood of unplanned maintenance , and avoid failures .

Hot topics of debate will include:

  • Finding the ideal balance between innovation, cost and quality in order to reduce extensive O&M efforts and ensure built-in reliability
  • Assessing the industry capacity to cope with ongoing growth in turbine size and subsequent scaling up of mechanical and electrical components
  • Comparing developer insights into component field performance, whilst outlining the key benefits of implementing a database approach
  • Understanding common causes of premature failures in wind turbine gearbox bearings to enact early detection procedures and identify effective control strategies
  • Practical experience using innovative component testing facilities to understand environmental challenges and ensure effective root cause analysis
  • Advancing a cost-competitive platform analysis of component upgrades, modifications and replacements , to determine why a utility would choose in-house, OEM or ISP service provision in and out of warranty
  • Best-practice methodologies for assessing components as part of an integrated system to produce a holistic reliability model and take control of your OPEX
