Launched today, the WEBS Annual Publication 2020 has unveiled a number of critical deep dive insights into the onshore wind industry that will have a major impact on owner/operators driving better returns on asset O&M during the year ahead.
The WEBS report analyses three years’ worth of data from 75 windfarms located throughout eight countries totalling more than 2GW of onshore wind capacity, and provides anonymous performance benchmarks for availability, production, reliability, and logistics. For example, ‘Prioritising scheduled maintenance for larger sites in periods of low wind could yield an additional 1,771MWh of production on larger sites (30-44 WTGs).’
The WEBS database has grown to more than 90 sites with a cumulative capacity of almost 4GW of onshore wind capacity across nine different European countries. This invaluable resource helps owners to understand where their availability sits in relation to others in their own region or with the same technology, thus…
