For wind farmers, sustainable operations and continuous revenue streams depend heavily on well-maintained grid connections, running at the highest reliability.

Grid connections are more likely to be neglected than the turbines, gearboxes and towers, although a failure of the highly system critical grid connection may lead to significant revenue losses. Whilst many farmers continue to apply a time-based or even a run-to-failure approach to maintaining their grid connection, there are solutions to improving the overall system reliability and uptime by applying advanced maintenance methods.

This webinar will zoom into the potential for wind farmers to improve their grid connection reliability, sustainable competitiveness and financial outcomes through the ability to intelligently gather operational information from grid connections, combine situational awareness with human expertise, and adopt advanced maintenance programs.
