Spare Parts Management in Offshore Wind

Spare parts management is a critical element of the successful implementation of offshore wind farm operations and can contribute to cost reductions. Accenture’s application of data analytics, process innovation and enhanced supplier collaboration has overhauled the spare parts management strategy of a major aerospace client, with much of the knowledge and experience accumulated applicable to the offshore wind sector.
