EA Technology has launched an independent forum to explore and address asset management issues within the on and offshore wind power sector.
The inaugural event is free to attend and has been specifically developed to help electrical engineers involved in operating or managing wind power generation.
Asset management experts from EA Technology will host a full day of case studies and troubleshooting sessions at the company’s Cheshire-based headquarters on Tuesday 26 November 2013, covering a range of topics including the causes of electrical asset failure and preventative measures; new power engineering technology available to wind power engineers and safety and standards issues, as well as any problems with plant, manufacturing and installation.
Ian Naylor, network asset manager at EA Technology, said: “We’re involved in a range of projects for wind power clients across the world and have tackled a number of different issues affecting what is still, in asset management terms, an emerging market.
“Through this work we’ve amassed a wealth of experience and knowledge within the wind power sector and identified a need for a forum where wind power asset managers, network owners and operators alike, could share and discuss electrical, and other technical problems.
“We have years of experience delivering forums for distribution network operators (DNOs) and industrial clients, so are using the same successful format for our Wind Power Forum for Electrical Engineers to bring the sector together and address common plant related issues, share best practice and raise awareness of the electrical asset challenges affecting the industry as a whole.
“Our expertise as international power engineering specialists, our independent position in the market and the specific nature of the forum, which is aimed specifically at electrical engineers, is what makes this event different to anything else in the UK. Attendees will benefit from receiving impartial analytical and engineering support and advice with other likeminded peers.”
The EA Technology Wind Power Forum has been established as a bi-annual event and, as the first in the series, the session on 26 November is free to attend for engineers and managers involved in the on and offshore wind power sector.
