Maintenance for Offshore Wind

December 7 & 8, 2016 - London, UK

Maintenance for Offshore Wind

ACI’s Maintenance for Offshore Wind will bring together key industry stakeholders from the offshore wind industry, associations, consultants, and solution technology providers.

Offshore wind is a strong asset in European waters, however the need to cut costs is recognized across the industry, particularly within operations and maintenance. However as O&M activity moves farther from shore and into deeper waters that is not going to be easy. As deep offshore capacity increases, expertise, skills, and technologies developed in Europe are increasingly in demand. At the same time, government and industry are facing important decisions regarding the size of the offshore wind industry and investment in new technologies and facilities. This conferece shall address these challenges as we look at maintaining and accessing the turbines that are sited to reform the electricity system across Europe.

Early confirmed speakers include: Siemens, E.ON, EDF (RD centre UK), The Green Investment bank, Wind Research, Cwind.
