O&M can account for 25 per cent of the project´s life expense
The variables involved in the O&M for wind power projects are the wind turbine technology, size and location of wind farm and the O&M philosophy adopted, which can be either reactive, preventive or condition based maintenance.
Greasing the Wheels
Inadequate O&M can lead to minor faults or defects not being recognised. This not only impacts yield but can also result in major component failure, potentially leading to costly repairs and lengthy downtime.
Wind energy | China leads
In comparison to the US, China´s installed wind capacity remained negligible during the early years of the 21st century, but the industry picked up pace from 2007 and saw a rapid increase in the number of wind turbine installations.
Suzlon bags 105-MW contracts from SMEs, PSUs
Wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon today said it has bagged contracts from SMEs and public sector undertakings (PSU) to supply 50 turbines of 2.1 MW each in various parts of the country.
Shell has offerings across the entire wind energy spectrum
The overall power scenario in India in terms of conventional energy is such that coal and gas are still the largest contributors. However, wind energy is the fastest moving alternate energy source with around 20-25 GW of installed capacity today.
India needs turbines that suit its low wind speed
There are some exciting critical developments in wind turbine technology that are very relevant in Indian conditions. The first is installing a wind turbine that is designed to suit India´s low wind speed conditions.
