TKI Wind op Zee LIVE - Maintenance & Fieldlab Zephyros AIRTuB Year Conference


On Tuesday 21 September 2021, from 11:30 to 17:00 hours, the WCM Fieldlab Zephyros AIRTuB Year Conference takes place in Vlissingen. During this event we will broadcast the sixth edition of TKI Wind op Zee LIVE. This time we will dive into the topic of maintenance.

Can we achieve zero maintenance for offshore wind? During TKI Wind op Zee LIVE we will discuss the necessary steps and innovations needed to achieve the goal of offshore wind farms that don't need maintenance. We will hear the thoughts of our guests on topics such as maintenance costs, optimisation of operations and maintenance (O&M), wind farm reliability, spatial aspects and health and safety aspects.

For maintenance costs, reliability and human capital play an important role. Between one-fourth and one-third of offshore wind energy costs are related to operating and maintaining wind farms. Operations and Maintenance (O&M) can be further optimised, for example, by scaling up the sector. Reliability and availability of offshore wind farms become increasingly important as we move to a production capacity of ± 60 GW. Production failure of large volumes could have serious consequences. In addition, spatial aspects play a crucial role in the busy North Sea, increasing the importance of minimising maintenance activities. And last but not least, health and safety aspects are very important for all the people who maintain offshore wind farms.
