The US wind O&M community recently gathered in Dallas for the Wind O&M Summit USA, and this year marked the event’s first wind energy excellence awards. In the category ‘Best Industry Newcomer,’ Spares in Motion was voted as the winner. The audience recognized the added value the e-trading platform Spares in Motion is bringing to the industry. The company is the e-trading platform for the wind turbine industry connecting sellers and buyers for spare parts, consumables, and services in the wind turbine industry.
Billions of dollars are invested in spare parts and consumables each year. Component suppliers, wind turbines OEMs, ISP, and finally the turbine owners all stock parts based on their individual prediction of spare part needs. This individual approach leads to high costs. Capital employed, cost for storage and finally the cost for parts which are becoming obsolete are all contributing to a higher CoE and making the wind industry less competitive.
By connecting sellers and buyers Spares in Motion is reducing lead-times and bringing transparency into the industry for the benefit of the whole wind industry.
Using Spares in Motion will:
• Reduced lead time for parts (more Wind turbine up-time)
• Less inventory (reduced capital cost for parts)
• Increase your sales reach (Cost efficient way to reach the buyers of the products)
All the benefits listed above are helping the wind industry to become more competitive and reducing the CoE.
The Wind Energy O&M Summit is US largest meeting point for professionals in the O&M of wind industry in which more than 400 attendees discussed how to extend the life of assets and improve cost control and for production of energy.
