Life Cycle Services
The availability of the WaveRoller wave farms is high due to the robust technology and long and highly predictable maintenance cycles. Availability and reliability have been the guiding principles in WaveRoller design, and its preventive maintenance program is based on the same extensive RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety) methodology used for nuclear power plants and offshore wind technology. AW-Energy can provide extensive maintenance services for all WaveRoller wave farms through its global partner network. Tested and verified spare parts and consumables provided by AW-Energy ensure the correct operation and reliability of the WaveRoller.
AW-Energy is offering 24/7 monitoring for the WaveRoller farms from AW-Energy service center. For customers, this enables light and efficient operation of the WaveRoller wave farms. The monitoring covers everything from the detailed production values to component wear and maintenance requirements. If our service professionals observe a change in the wear of a component that could cause unplanned downtime, a corrective maintenance action can be planned well beforehand to take advantage of suitable operational conditions. Depending on the agreed service level, 24/7 monitoring and service makes quick response to unexpected events possible even without customer input and helps to minimize the need and costs of unplanned maintenance.
WaveRoller is a highly scalable technology, and the number of devices in a wave farm can be easily increased during the farm’s lifecycle. The WaveRoller farm production can be optimized based on accumulated environmental and operational data and to make the most of possible farm expansions.
