Wind Energy Update releases new O&M report

Wind Energy Update’s research clearly shows that drivetrain components take the longest time to repair, while most other component failures are resolved quickly.

Wind Energy Update recently published their latest Wind Energy Operations & Maintenance Report 2017which provides the data and analysis required of wind-farm owners and operators to adopt a cost-effective operations and maintenance (O&M) strategy.

The report offers exclusive research that shows the mean time to repair failures on variable resistance turbines, as well as:

  • Drivetrains
  • Rotors
  • Generators
  • Blade adjustments
  • Central hydraulics
  • Control and protections
  • External lighting protecting
  • Structure and Machinery Enclosure
  • Turbine Transmission
  • Yaw

The report provides comprehensive data and analysis on failure rates and repair time data for onshore turbines around the world in Europe and the U.S. It shows that there are more serious generator failures, which take a longer time to repair, and that drivetrain components take the longest time to repair. Most other turbine component failures are resolved quickly. Learn more here.
