The importance of safety stock for wind farm maintenance
Scheduled maintenance at wind farms requires strict control over periods of downtime. The means that the wind farm’s personnel or the maintenance company must monitor each factor that could affect the work being performed. Safety stock is a way to help maintain control over these activities in relation to replacement parts and consumable supplies.
