As the global installed capacity of wind energy expands, so too does the depth of the industry’s operational experience – each new wind turbine contributes to a massive resource of data and expertise. This session taps into this ever-evolving set of metrics and trends to uncover the latest improvements in the diverse field of Operations and Maintenance (O&M). Explore strategies to reduce operational uncertainty, tactics for de-icing and the wind industry’s incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) for mechanical and electrical systems maintenance.
