Service Lifts Take Wind Industry Higher

Tildy Bayar, Associate Editor, Renewable Energy World June 11, 2013 Nacelle access solutions such as ladders and climb-assist technologies have been in place since there have been wind turbines, but as turbines get taller, service lifts (SLs) are becoming the solution of choice for new-bui...

Cost Modeling for Offshore Wind Operations and Maintenance

Rene van de Pieterman, Contributor April 10, 2013 Several European countries have defined targets to install and operate offshore wind energy as part of their renewable energy goals. According to these targets, more than 40 GW offshore wind power is expected to be install...

Virtual Training, Real Savings: Providing Instruction at Less Cost

Harry Daglas, Contributor April 8, 2013 Companies in the global energy industry are under intense pressure from all directions. Growth in power demand must always be met and compliance with increasingly stringent health, safety and environmental regulations is m...

Getting More from Wind Turbines with Condition Monitoring Systems

Gabriel Schwanzer, Contributor April 4, 2013 Wind turbine downtime is particularly costly during winter, for two reasons. First, November to April is the period over which most such plants around the world produce around two thirds of their electricity yield. The win...

Determining Wind Turbine Reliability: Test, Test, then Test Again

James Lawson, Contributor January 10, 2013 Reliability is the key attribute of a turbine today, particularly offshore. There are many other important measures of wind turbine performance, notably the cost per unit of electricity generated, but they count for little...

Can Fibre Optic Monitoring Cut Wind Energy O&M Costs?

L.W.M.M. Rademakers and T.W. Verbruggen, ECN December 25, 2012 Condition based maintenance is increasingly used to curb wind turbine operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, especially at offshore sites where visits are prohibitively expensive. Replacing corrective maintenance with cond...
