Maintenance of Wind Power Plants 2019

VGB IT Solutions

26.03.2019 - 27.03.2019

The focal topics of this VGB conference will deal with the reduction of installation and operating costs of wind power plants as well as with the enhancement of operational safety and reliability. The consistent further development of system technology, in particular the optimisation of maintenance strategies will play a decisive role in the future in order to increase technical availability and thus economic efficiency of the appropriate systems.

Different concepts will be presented to optimise blade maintenance and to reduce repair costs. In addition, measurement methods to analyse the relative rotor blade angle will be explained to increase the annual energy production. Several presentations will focus on operational optimisation measures of wind power plants and wind farms. Finally, fire protection measures will be discussed.

The conference will mainly highlight the following topics:

  • Maintenance of Rotor Blades

The programme will leave enough time for extensive discussions and answering your questions.

The conference addresses operators of wind power plants and all persons and institutions that are directly or indirectly involved in the installation or operation of wind power plants.

We would be very pleased to welcome you in Bremen in order to optimise the operation of wind power plants together with you.
