Overview: WindEnergy Hamburg 2018

On September 25–28, WindEnergy Hamburg 2018 – the world’s most important wind energy event – took place. The 2018 edition was the biggest yet and had plenty to offer attendees. Whether visitors wanted to learn about innovative new products or attend panel discussions about the future of the sector, there was something for everyone. Here’s a recap of the event.

Maintenance
Digitized inventory

Many operators order replacement parts on an item-by-item basis. This can be effective but does have limitations since the performance of the total system is not understood when considering items in an inventory individually. Innovative software may hold the key to fine tuning stock levels and expenses on spare parts and ensuring wind farms always have just what they need.

Technology
The world of bearings

Bearings are responsible for ensuring wind turbines keep on turning. They are active in numerous parts of machinery and play different roles. Therefore, there is a wide variety in every turbine. What are some of the key bearings and how are they used?

Operations
Make bearings go further

When a bearing approaches the end of its service life, it may seem logical to replace it with a new one. This has been the attitude in the wind energy sector for many years. But things might be about to change as remanufacturing bearings offers organizations the chance to become more competitive and boost uptime.

Operations
Construction in wind energy – part 1

The planning and preparation that goes into constructing an operational wind farm is enormous. From choosing the right location to installing the turbines and commissioning the facility, there’s a lot for organizations to consider. Where do you start when building a wind farm?
