Windconnect O&M Forum

what is windconnect?


Meet The Right People, At The Right Time, In The Right Way

The renowned WindConnect Forum is a bespoke, invitation-only meeting that fuses a first-class conference with pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings between pre-qualified O&M service providers and senior decision makers from developers, owners, operators and utilities.

We only invite O&M professionals with exceptional credentials and solution-providers who maintain the most cutting-edge capabilities to ensure structured business development and premium peer-to-peer networking.

The innovative and unique format will ensure you are purchase-decision ready for 2016 and beyond.

what's in store for 2016?

the conference

As more European wind farms are reaching the post-warranty phase, increased offshore assets are commissioned and the number of operational turbines grows rapidly – now is the opportune time to re-evaluate your O&M activities and expenditure.

The WindConnect conference ‘Asset Optimisation To Drastically Improve Energetic Availability, Reduce Post-Warranty Downtime And Increase Your ROI’ will allow you to benchmark your O&M strategy against the utilities and IPPs that are pursuing disparate approaches to asset management.

Conference highlights include:

  • Discover how E.ON have sought to optimise their assets through a thorough evaluation of the move to an in-house O&M strategy
  • Hear the full range of perspectives from respective players, including RES Offshore, on how to separate the O from the M in mitigating the effect of long-term full service OEM agreements with investors, on a dynamic and independent O&M market
  • Gain crucial insights in to the rapidly growing Offshore Wind market, in which standardised technical and commercial  practices have not yet emerged but O&M activity accounts for approximately one quarter of a project’s total life-time cost
