Offshore Wind O&M Forum Europe

November 4 & 5, 2015 - London, UK

At Offshore Wind O&M Forum Europe, you will hear from the owners, operators, asset managers and O&M providers of the biggest offshore wind portfolios in Europe. By learning from their expertise and insight, you will be able to create and develop O&M strategies that maximise the performance of your asset, and evolve your offshore O&M techniques for an advanced and cost-effective service provision.

Offshore wind’s leading experts guide you through the creation and implementation of an O&M strategy that uses strong data analysis to improve efficiency, collaboration, access and logistics.

Topics to be discussed at Offshore Wind O&M Europe:

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR ASSET: Adequately prepare for bringing O&M capabilities in-house by understanding how a strategy change could affect your on site team’s efficiency, moral and ultimately their ability to increase your farms production and ROI.

IMPROVE ON SITE EFFICIENCY & COLLABORATION: Learn how to successfully collaborate with your OEM’s on site unit to ensure a smooth running O&M team

ADVANCETHE QUALITY OF YOUR SUBSEA INSPECTION & MAINTENANCE: Discuss the latest ways sub-sea inspections are being used so you can benchmark against your own processes & evolve your strategy where possible

OPTIMISE YOUR ACCESS STRATEGY & LOGISTICS: Hear how to improve your OPEX through access strategy to save large sums of money using an OPEX forecast that takes into consideration failure rates & cost implications

ENHANCE O&M THROUGH EFFECTIVE DATA ANALYSIS: Discuss how failure rates, SCADA & CMS can improve the operational performance of your turbines, major components & elements of your BoP to see cost benefits of in-depth data analysis

SUCCESSFULLY MONITOR & MAINTAIN YOUR BLADES: Understand where we’re about to see major cost increases for monitoring & maintaining blades & hear what operators are doing to counter-act this by going in-depth on 7-9yr old farms for a view of how to avoid this before it happens to you

STRENGTHEN YOUR O&M STRATEGY FROM AN OFTO PERSPECTIVE: Hear different owner-operator viewpoints on the varying experiences between being the farm owner and OFTO for lessons learned from both sides
