Optimising Wind Farms In Cold Climates

Optimising Wind Farms in Cold Climates


Do you work on wind farms in cold and difficult climates?

Is your wind farm affected by unpredictable icing events and risk of ice throw? 

Do you want to join your peers from 14+ countries across the globe?

Do you want to go to an event whose delegates give it a 100% rating of excellent?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then you must join us in October 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. 

WHAT'S NEW IN 2017? 

  • A NEW LOCATION! This year’s edition will be held for the very first time in Antwerp, Belgium.
  • A SITE VISIT TO ONE OF EUROPE'S LARGEST CLIMATIC TEST CHAMBERS! That's right, we partnered up with OWI-Lab , which is specialised in climatic testing of wind components, systems and sub-systems  (cold start, design verification testing, icing, etc…) and together with them, we will be hosting a site visit to give delegates the opportunity to experience first hand the impact of cold climate issues. 

In 2016 we discussed:

  • 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
  • OEMs panel discussion on realistic warranties and expectations on icing technology and blade’s lifetime
  • How to exploit condition monitoring at its full potential and integrate this in effective asset management strategies
  • The latest health and safety advancements on ice throw and ice fall scenarios
  • The Case Of “Tahkoluoto Wind Farm” - The First Offshore Site In Arctic Conditions
