Objectives

The OPTIMUS project has three main objectives:

  • To improve reliability within the wind power generation industry by delivering the prognostic technology necessary to evolve to predictive maintenance strategies, substantially reduce unexpected wind turbine failures and unnecessary costs and minimise downtime
  • Improvement in the efficiency of maintenance procedures and operational reliability of wind turbines
  • To support the implementation of the European Wind Initiative of the SET-Plan (SEII) and contribute significantly towards achieving the reliability, socioeconomic and environmental targets that have been set for the European wind energy industry by 2020
