The number of active wind turbines in Europe is increasing, which creates the demand for conservation works.
DAAS rope access technicians with GWO, SEP and IRATA certificates, as well as certified drone operators, can take care of it.
We will do for you:
- inspections of blades (with the use of rope access or with thermographic technique, using drones)
- blade damage repair
- inspections of wind turbine towers
- repairs of anti-corrosion system
- support in the assembly of turbines
Why is a wind turbine inspection necessary?
Snow, hail, rain, lightning are just some of the weather factors that wind turbine elements are fight daily basis. The blade of a wind turbine can be damaged by other factors as well. The blade of a wind turbine can be damaged by other factors as well. Such reasons may be: extreme loads or manufacturing defects, which most often lead to microdamages. The most common defects that are detected during wind turbine inspections belong: cracks, damage, peeling paint, deformation, corrosion, lightning, water ingress or oil leakage. These include the tower, shovels, nacelle and hub.
In the absence of preventive consequences, any wind turbine failure can cause wind farm owners many problems and huge financial losses. Most often, such situations are related to repairs and waiting for spare parts, which unfortunately increases downtime. Therefore, it is worth taking precautions early enough to avoid similar incidents.
