Project objective

The main aim of the WInD pool is to support the wind industry based on a broad statistical data base their business decisions with information and perspective as to reduce the electricity generation costs.

Expected outcome

Participating wind farm operators feed operation and maintenance data in the WInD-Pool and get in return a regular reporting on performance of their plants with a comparison (benchmark) to the whole. At the same time a large amount of data arise that allows reliable performance and reliability analysis to build up a library of reliability parameters. These parameters for operating and failure behavior – especially of critical components – allow checking and improvement of maintenance procedures with the aim of reducing costs.
