Organised by engineers representing the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the second Wind Turbine User Group event offers attendees two days of technical content and knowledge sharing to support all engineers involved with wind turbine assets.
This event is part of a popular series of power industry user groups that enable those involved in the management, operation and maintenance of wind turbines to discuss common problems and issues. Join us to exchange ideas, identify potential solutions and learn about new developments at our technical conference offering peer reviewed and high level content.
Join us to hear directly from OEMs, service providers and end users of wind turbines about the latest technologies available. Learn from case studies that will address the challenges facing the delivery of wind turbine O&M services and opportunities for cost reduction and health and safety improvements.
Whether you are involved in the design, manufacture, operation, management and maintenance of wind turbines, this event will enable to stay up to date and benefit from the shared experience of your peers and industry leaders.
Call for presentations now open:
We warmly invite all professionals involved with these assets to share their findings, expertise and work with the wider engineering community at the 2023 User Group by providing a 20 minute presentation to delegates as the basis for discussion and debate.
