Intertek to present at the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition from May 20-23 in Houston, TX.

May 16, 2019

HOUSTON – Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will present an integrated and innovative range of technical services supporting the wind energy industry at the Houston-based AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition during May 20-23, 2019.

The AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition brings together thought leaders, suppliers, service providers, owners, operators and other attendees.  Expert collaboration is promoted and encouraged in an atmosphere of learning, knowledge-sharing and innovation, all of which is focused on providing solutions that improve safety, quality, operational efficiency and asset reliability.     

Intertek’s integrated and innovative solutions support wind energy companies around the world, helping them to minimize their total cost of quality and maximize the effectiveness of their quality spend, optimize operational efficiency and asset reliability, meet regulatory and certification requirements, and above all ensure safe working environments for personnel. 

Please join us on Thursday, May 23, 9:15-10:15 during a presentation on Asset Integrity Management for Aging Wind Turbines. Much of the wind-generating fleet is less than a decade old, and therefore the impact of equipment age on reliability and performance has not manifested in a significant way. As this large fleet of wind assets ages, however, it is expected that the units will degrade in terms of reliability and performance. This presentation will discuss industry case studies along with the challenge of asset management for wind turbines. Intertek will discuss our experience with asset management programs for wind power plants as well as the challenge of small sample size of failures, complexity of components, site specific variability, and warranty contract expirations.

To meet with one of our experts at AWEA WINDPOWER 2019, please visit us at booth # 3332. During this four-day event we will be available to discuss how our globally recognized and trusted assurance, testing, inspection and certification services can support your quality, safety, and regulatory needs.
