End-User in Roundtable discussions on the:
Enercon E82
Also including the E92 model
25 OCT - 13:45 - 15:30

Description:
The Enercon E70-E92 platform is another popular turbine among wind turbine owners. Enercon is a supplier that provides very long term service deals, Off course this rugged synchronous turbine has like all the other manufacturers some issues.

Agenda suggested for discussions:

  • Documentation - Do we have access to all information the OEM can provide?
  • How to reset so called star alarms - This alarms requires a service code that only given by Enercon to Enercon employees.
  • Spare parts - Cut down the lead-time, ordering spare parts and the possibility to change by third party contractor.
  • Blades – Maintenance issues and what about the quality of Enercon's own blade inspections. Action plans after inspected? Does this inspection requires another inspection to estimate the costs of possible repairs?
  • Pitch system - Have others seen problems with sensors, broken beams inside the blade root etc.?
  • Electrics - Generator issues and frequency controlled systems as controller/motors/fans etc. both in lower tower section and up in the nacelle.
  • Blade heating – Costly and less productive or a good thing that we must have?
  • Is it still a closed closet or have Enercon along with other suppliers started to open up for the future and are willing to let subcontractors fight over maintenance deals? – Is this really possible when Enercon has their own hardware controllers?
