IEA Wind Task 33 Industry Workshop: Reliability Data Collection and Maintenance Modelling Methods

We are pleased to invite you attend a 1-day workshop focusing on data collection and modelling strategies for improving wind turbine reliability, which will be held in

Berlin, Wednesday 23rd September 2015

The free workshop is part of a three day event which will bring together representatives from universities, utilities, and operators, manufacturers, R&D organisations and standards groups to share common experiences with collecting and modelling wind farm data with a view to improving Operations and Maintenance (O&M) strategies and reducing Life Cycle Costs (LCC).

The workshop will address the topics of reliability and maintenance modelling and also the need for high quality reliability data. Utilities and operators will share experiences with collecting and using data to drive reliability improvements. New and relevant research from universities and R&D organisations will be presented and the IEA Wind Task33 working group will present its draft recommended practices for standardising data collection for wind turbine reliability and O&M analyses
