Some Like it Hot, Others, Windy: AWEA Operations & Maintenance Conference Comes to San Diego

| Jessica Baris, Communications Specialist and Copywriter

San Diego’s Hotel del Coronado is said to be haunted <> and is the legendary spot where Marilyn Monroe filmed " Some Like it Hot ."

This week, the historic hotel will be teeming with wind energy professionals for the annual American Wind Energy Association’s Wind Project O&M and Safety Conference. It’s safe to say the conference’s attendees prefer it to be windy.

Maxwell Technologies returns as an exhibitor this year. We look forward to meeting attendees and sharing our energy storage product line, based on Maxwell’s proprietary ultracapacitor (supercapacitor) technology.

Stop by Maxwell’s booth (#102 in the Coronet Room) to discover our ultracapacitor solutions for emergency pitch control.

Meet and speak with our wind team

Maxwell’s Vice President of Sales for the Americas, Gordon Schenk, and Regional Sales Managers Marty Mills and John Meaney, will be on hand to answer your questions about ultracapacitor technology and its application for emergency wind pitch control.

For nearly 20 years, our team has worked closely with wind farm operators and OEMs to understand the specific operations and maintenance challenges associated with pitch systems. Visit our booth and tell us about the maintenance challenges you experience with pitch control. We can tell you how our ultracapacitor-based energy storage solutions significantly reduce maintenance efforts and number of pitch faults, slash battery replacements, and increase turbine uptime.

On display!
