The efficiency of any form of power generation depends not only on the technology chosen for a plant, but also on the processes and tools used to control operations and maintain installations and infrastructures.
Maintenance is vital in minimising downtime and fixing problems before they cause damage. We investigate the benefits of preventative maintenance in the case of wind power installations.
We also explore the tools used in plant operations, looking at control systems and software available on the market, as well as simulation tools used for the training of operators.
Cranes are essential whenever the power industry needs a bit of muscle for maintenance. We speak to lifting specialists about power generation applications of cranes.
