Spica presenting at Wind Energy Denmark

On October 31st, Spica Technology attended the annual conference Wind Energy Denmark and was represented by our CEO Benny Thomsen. Get the highlights and a 25 sec recap of our attendance.

During the opening session, a panel of leading experts highlighted some interesting statements about Denmark’s leading position in wind energy:

Andreas Nauen, CEO Offshore Wind from Siemens Gamesa, started the debate by saying: "Denmark is a global leader in the wind industry. But we are under attack from a lot of competitors."

Benny Thomsen presenting at Wind Energy Denmark

At the conference, our CEO Benny Thomsen had the privilege to be part of a session panel about lifetime extension of existing turbines. He presented our latest retrofit business cases and the considerations in lifetime extension e.g.:

- How many years could the turbines still be functional, mechanically speaking?

- The economic considerations of whether the turbine is worth to renew, or whether the
  turbine should be dismantled?

At Spica Technology, we collect data from the turbines to analyse a turbine's conditions to understand whether the turbine has reached its mechanical limit of twenty years, or whether the mechanical conditions still allow the turbine to be fully operational.
