Interim Project Manager, Austria based, with a large UK industrial group responsible for recovering three wind farms (30 machines)
Stabilised wind farms increasing availability to quickly reduce financial penalties (potentially €12k per day)
Managed ongoing farm service support and major repair projects (gearbox change outs, etc)
Wrote, prequalified, tendered, negotiated and awarded long term “hands off” full service contract
As Interim Manager for a UK industrial plc, I managed the recovery of a 42MW 30 machine wind farm across three sites in Austria that was dilapidated with availability down to 65%.
I established the status, then specified and let the initial recovery contract.
I managed the wider recovery in a very hands-on role. I took responsibility for and managed the technical, commercial and operational functions at site. I also managed major repair projects on gearboxes, main bearings and blades etc.
I constructed, prequalified, tendered and negotiated a long term full service agreement, including appointing a new contractor and managing the transition from previous contractor to new contractor.
Park availability rose from 65% to over 90% in six months.
