Wind Turbine Operation & Maintenance After Market | Castrol Power Generation

A WIDE ARRAY OF SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE LCOE & MAXIMIZE FARM EFFICIENCY

Wind power is a relatively modern industry and in a short span, caters to about 5 % of the global energy requirement. It is estimated that by the year 2030, 30 % of the energy demand will be met by Wind power.

 

During these times of buoyant growth, Wind farms are faced with 3 big challenges –

1.    LCOE (Levelised cost of energy) – With reducing subsidies, the industry needs to continuously reduce LCOE to remain competitive

2.    Ageing assets – With nearly 60% of the assets expected to be out of warranty by the year 2021, the wind farms are challenged to raise the standards of O&M to minimize Downtime

3.    Skills Gap – The wind industry today employs more than 35,000 technicians and this number is growing @ 6 % per annum. A recent survey shows that 78 % of Wind energy stakeholders state that Finding suitably trained staff is either ‘Difficult’ or ‘Very Difficult’

 

The Castrol Wind Aftermarket offer addresses these challenges through –

 

  • Products which demonstrate Higher efficiency to help you produce more and reduce Cost
