A route map approach for wind asset optimization
Wind Turbine Engineer
A multidisciplinary approach to optimizing wind assets, an invaluable support to gain control of assets at any point in their operational life.
Optimal wind asset operations are key to ensure that generation performance is high and guarantee favourable financial returns. The benefits of this robust and modular process are equally important for ageing operational wind turbines and newly installed farms.
Combined knowledge enables you to gain control of your assets
DNV GL has developed a route map approach to empower wind farms owners and operators to gain control of their assets, steer operating strategies and achieve financial goals. This integrated approach comprises specialist engineering expertise in turbine inspections, turbine engineering, wind resource and operational SCADA data analytics disciplines.
A systematic and rigorous approach allows our experts to analyse the assets and identify the best suitable solutions to achieve defined strategies.
A graphical representation of the phases and their aim is represented in Figure 1.1 and Figure 1.2.
