Canada is the new frontier in wind operations. Here’s why you need to be there to capitalize on it:

  • In 2015 Canadian renewable energy investment grew by 50% to reach C$7.2 billion – with this volume of capital flowing into the market, all players involved stand to make huge wins so long as they are engaged with the right companies at the right time
  • Over 10,000 MW of wind power is in operation in Canada, 189 wind farms and that number is still growing. 6,000 megawatts of new wind energy capacity will become available in the next five years pushing O&M far higher up the priority list
  • Ontario and Quebec generate more wind energy than the other provinces. Another 4500 megawatts of wind energy is estimated to be produced by these two provinces in the next five years. Come to the load center of operational turbines to carry out essential business
  • By 2025 the potential size of the O&M market is estimated at roughly US$6 billion annually – since 2009 WEU has represented operators that have collectively invested over US$65 billion on O&M expenditure, come and claim your share
  • Over the next few years, many wind farms will come to the end of their warranty period – at this years event you will get expert insight from an operational, OEM, insurance and financial perspective on end of warranty options to guide your strategy
