Blade Inspection And Repair

Blade Inspection And Repair
"A strong reputation as a progressive partner, highly focused on new innovations and techniques. We provide our clients with well-informed integrity recommendations."

The condition of wind turbine blades directly impacts the efficiency and longevity of the wind turbine.

Over time, blades are exposed to harsh environmental conditions, including extreme temperatures and heavy winds. This consequently leads to issues such as lightening damage, erosion or cracking, which if left unchecked may result in costly performance declines and the need for major repairs.

With over 30 years’ experience in the wind industry, we’ve built up a strong reputation as a progressive partner, highly focused on new innovations and techniques to provide our clients with well-informed integrity recommendations. Using our extensive wind expertise, we help our clients save time and money by offering market-leading blade inspection, maintenance and repair services to detect any integrity problems early on and ensure that they are dealt with accordingly.
