Wind farm: top 5 technical risks

Wind farm: top 5 technical risks

Greensolver is often asked which technical risks are most likely to affect a wind farm’s profitability - risks that should be carefully considered and anticipated in order to minimise project downtime. As part of the risk analysis required by the ISO 55001 Asset...

Evaluating Maintenance Performance

The profitability of wind farms is often compromised by turbine failure and downtime. Despite the wide variety of preventative maintenance programs which are often implemented across these farms, failures can still occur. Seeking to help investors minimize the...
