Thank you for joining us in 2017

Thank you to our delegates, speakers and sponsors who came to the 6th Annual Wind Farm Data Management and Analysis Forum in Hamburg, Germany.

Below is a reminder of what we learned. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

What Value Did We Gain?

At this conference we presented all the different methods of collecting, analysing and making use of data to identify which is the most suitable for your requirements. 

Delegates went away with a solid R.O.I. case for optimising their existing operations and the ability to forecast their own failure rates and performance with greater accuracy.

They were able to compare against competitors for greater annual performance - benchmarking yield power curves, failure rates and O&M completion times.

Product providers could identify where they needed to adapt services to tailor to the market and the latest techniques.

In 2017 we covered:

  • The 1st Open Data Windfarm : “La Haute Borne” with ENGIE Green

  • Forecasting failure and performance degradation with better measurement tools and analysis – special presentation from Verbund on the benefits of using lidar and other wind resource assessment techniques for o&m

  • Understanding preventative maintenance, prognostics and artificial intelligence – in depth session from Sirris on ‘fleet-based operational optimisation as an A.I. task’

  • Getting access to quality data and optimising your scada – EDF to present on ‘making the most of your scada data’

  • Data & information sharing initiatives, cloud storage and cyber security – Vattenfall and IEC committee member will present on ‘the benefits of using standardised engineering processes and IEC information models’

    + a special case study on the SPARTA project from ORE Catapult

  • Decentralised power generation and the internet of things: panel and presentation on ‘ decentralised power generation management and virtual power plants ’ and ‘ the internet of things and micro generation assets

  • Half day work shop on asset management with newer more interactive sessions than ever before

who SHOULD attend?

The forum is relevant to anyone who is involved in utilising data in order to improve wind farm performance, in both the O&M and power optimisation areas.

It is relevant to Onshore and Offshore wind and looks at which techniques can be employed to do more with your data at the sub-component, component, site and fleet levels.

We typically examine industry trends in analysing SCADA, CMS/CMMS, LiDAR, inspection, metocean and on-site maintenance technician data, but are not necessarily limited to these data sources.
