Mark your calendar for the Canadian Wind Energy Association’s (CanWEA) annual Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Summit taking place in Toronto on January 30 – 31, 2018. With three years under our belt, this event is proving to be THE place to be to network with, and share information among, hundreds of top wind farm operators, turbine manufacturers and service providers in Canada. The 2018 Summit will cover the latest in technical innovations, operational strategies, turbine technologies and more. Programming will also include interactive, open working sessions on important topics such as health and safety, grid compliance and technician training.
As the wind energy industry continues to expand, so does the need for an evolving approach to operating the nation’s growing number of wind projects. Fortunately, there is no shortage of experience to draw from in this arena. Individuals from across industry sectors and across functional disciplines will join in San Diego in February to set a vision and plan for continued and expanded operational excellence in the wind industry.
The largest North American gathering of wind energy operational professionals and technicians, the AWEA Operations & Maintenance and Safety Conference is where the industry comes together to recognize unique challenges and identify solutions in four main sectors:
– Health & safety
– Workforce training & development
– Quality assurance
