As we continue to see increasing blade lengths, the development and adoption of new technology and an interest in developing new sites, the European wind industry has never been more competitive. Between satisfying regulatory requirements and negotiating with investors and insurers, wind farm development and operations require answers about blades. More information is needed on all queries, from the cost-benefit of larger blades to warranty details to ensure they are operating to the fullest capability for the full asset lifetime.

Each year Blades Europe provides a unique platform for the industry leading owner-operators, developers and experts in the blades community to come together, share their experiences and best practices, discover the latest technological innovations and develop strategies to enhance the lifecycle of a blade.

KEY THEMES

  • Content covering O&M considerations for the entire lifecycle of the blade, from design through to life-time extension and decommissioning
  • Insights highlighting new efficiencies that will reduce your OPEX and remain cost-competitive in the subsidy-free era
