The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has published a first-of-its-kind report on recommended operations, maintenance and reliability practices for modern wind turbines and projects.
The report titled AWEA Operation and Maintenance Recommended Practices, is a product of AWEA’s Operation and Maintenance working group. The recommended practices were compiled with input from dozens of expert wind project operators, engineers, technicians and designers and focuses on eight areas: gearboxes; generators; rotors and blades; towers; data collection and reporting; balance of plant; end-of-warranty; and condition-based maintenance. AWEA members can download this publication for free at the AWEA Member Center. Non-members can purchase the report online.
