Wind turbine owner's roundtable:
25 OCT - Session 3
View timetable

Having a separate spare part naming structure for each model will always be a burden for an owner with several turbine models in their portfolio. But, the wind industry is maturing and players like Statoil, Dong, E.ON, Innogy, Statkraft, Vestas and Siemens are refining a common standard for the wind industry. The reference system is also based on functionality and ties together the right spare part with the right documentation and tools, which will improve the handling of your daily O&M tasks. The reference system allows the operator to build a mirror in their IT-system. This gives the operator a powerful tool for planning their daily O&M, and to follow up on Life Cycle Costs models.

Agenda suggested for discussions:

  • How to create a better O&M history for each component, turbine and wind farm
  • How to compare the same component across several wind farms
  • How to follow up on Life Cycle Costs models
  • How to build a mirror of the reference system in your IT system – based on functionality and needs in daily O&M
  • Create a better O&M history for each component, turbine and wind farm
  • How to implement spare part management to match your O&M strategy, and how RDS-PP® can help you to achieve a more efficient organization
  • How much resources do you need to spend on IT-systems, personnel and other investments to gain the benefits of RDS-PP®?
  • Is it mainly the major operators who can implement RDS-PP® or is it fully accessible for the smaller operators as well?
