As wind turbines pass the warranty period, wind farm O&M becomes increasingly important. The global market for wind power O&M was USD4.2 billion in 2010 and will reach USD11.8 billion by 2016 with CAGR of 19%.
By 2016, China will be the largest wind farm O&M market in the world. How to optimize O&M to achieve better efficiency at wind farms is becoming a major challenge facing wind farm owners and operators.
To promote international communication about experiences and expertise in wind farm O&M, ATKEPP, an international consulting firm with wind as one of its focused areas, will organize the 2012 Wind Farm O&M Conference (WFOM2012) in China on 16-17 July, 2012.
