Project SCADA Monitoring:

  • A well integrated asset monitoring, dispatch and planning group to ensures the most efficient and effective O&M program possible for all of our different customers. 

 

Predictive and Preventive:

On top of a standard planned maintenance program which includes well managed scheduled maintenance events, a predictive maintenance program can be created to identify, track and proactively manage small issues before they become service problems.  It can also provide substantial information about the wind farm which is valuable and provides budgetary support for possible needs for future repairs and maintenance program adjustment requirements.  Whatever your operating conditions, we can help you develop a plan of action that will extend the life of wind asset investments and maximize productivity. Northwind Solutions provides Operations and Maintenance services on all types of Wind Turbine Generators.
