Wind Turbine Blade Inspection

Utilising a variety of access techniques for blade inspection, GEV are able to provide a fast and effective service to complete the detailed analysis of all aspects of damage to the wind turbine blades.

If necessary, we are able to deploy an expert to complete a close visual inspection of the wind turbine blade to correctly classify levels of damage, using rope access techniques as the quickest method to save on lost production. The incorrect diagnosis of damage is a common issue and typically leads to unforeseen delays with the repair process and preventative campaigns exceeding budgets.

Stages of Internal & External Blade Inspection

GEV’s approach to internal and external blade inspection, has seen us enhance our process to ensure accurate damage reporting can be compiled, and in turn reviewed in partnership with our clients, to review the structural integrity of their blades.

Our innovative approach to blade inspection, maintenance and repair, has seen GEV Wind Power forge partnerships with leading technology providers, further complementing our more traditional methods such as rope access inspections.

Our most recent partnership with Danish blade defect assessment provider; Wind Power LAB, has helped us define the process into 4 simple stages:
