The wind-energy sector is maturing - even in the most difficult of times - and there is much to be excited about. Players within the industry have demonstrated strength, resilience and forward-thinking over the past 12 months and managed to not only operate but to innovate, despite unprecedented challenges.
The 2020 Windpower Monthly products of the year awards celebrate these achievements, but they also aim to inspire and fuel further growth and excellence. That’s why we’re hosting a virtual roundtable in partnership with award winners Enercon and ZF Wind Power, to discuss future progress with the top turbine category winners.
As wind turbine manufacturers continue to search for the most efficient turbines in an attempt to reduce Levelized Costs of Energy (LCOE), many are experiencing the benefit of shifting to a modular platform.
In the past, turbine inspection crews have relied on various tools to get a closer look at blades: binoculars, ropes, high-definition ground cameras. But these approaches have limitations in terms of accuracy, safety and then there’s expensive downtime. Today, automated visual inspection technologies have replaced these methods.
Join this Windpower Monthly session – produced in partnership with Sulzer & Schmid – as we look at how the latest inspection technology will change how you manage data.
Collecting data has become a major step to improved business and work efficiency, but analysing and optimising data is still the turning point for most companies. In this webinar, find out how Castrol's oil condition-monitoring service, and working with ONYX InSight, provides real-time condition-based oil and machine health monitoring to maximise turbines’ asset life.
