And that’s before we even consider offshore projects. Due to fierce competition from a buoyant oil and gas industry, simple economics and complicated logistics, development of the wind industry has until now been kept firmly onshore. However, if we are serious about achieving the 2020 targets it is simply undeniable that offshore development is essential – it has greater wind speed, less turbulence, and space is no longer a constricting factor. Successful offshore development will improve energy security and seriously boost your company’s bottom line!


Escalating O&M costs will threaten profit margins
Recent turbine failures have only highlighted the damage your farm can suffer if you ignore O&M – can you afford not to be operating at maximum capacity? Until now manufacturers have always satisfied your O&M needs during the warranty period and will continue to do so after it’s expired. But is this really the most cost effective option?

O&M can make or break your project, tipping it from being a profitable investment opportunity to a loss making failure. The Wind Energy Operations and Maintenance Summit will show you how to slash your O&M costs and deliver unparalleled profits from your wind projects – you simply cannot afford to miss out!

Your business needs you to join us to ensure you gain the latest industry knowledge. You will learn exactly how to deliver an excellent O&M strategy that not only reduces costs but also drives up profits, output and margins as Wind Energy propels towards it’s 2020 targets.
