Operational Readiness | Bridging the Gap

Asset Stage
Day 01

The team building a wind farm are rarely the team to operate the wind farm. This is my story of joining a wind farm project as the Asset Manager, part way through construction.

With a large wind farm soundly set up for the success to execute construction, initial thoughts to day one commercial operations and asset life operability were limited.

Operational and Maintenance strategies had not yet been agreed, scopes undefined, contract services not yet procured.So what changed? A business who recognized the value and benefits of engaging early with an Asset and Operations team.With a dedicated resource and team with an operations focus, working closely with the construction team, gap analyses easily occurred, plans on next steps agreed and a path forward detailed and communicated.
