Would you like to speak with one of our composite specialists?
How often should wind turbine blades be inspected?
It’s recommended that annual or semi-annual inspections be completed by local staff technicians at a minimum. Data captured should be reviewed by qualified composite specialists who can then recommend corrective or preventative maintenance.
What's the best method of inspection?
What’s most important is that inspections are completed regularly and data is evaluated by a composite professional who can then recommend corrective or preventiative action. You may consider drone inspection technology with autonumous data capture or your standard ground inspection with high powered telescopic camera systems.
How can I lower my cost for blade maintenance?
Get proactive! Complete regular inspections and hire a professional to review the information. Don’t wait to address damage found. Certain damage can result in rapid degradation and exaggerate repair costs. Act early and often.
