LPS Solutions & Services
Lightning Protection Systems are a necessity for protecting a wind turbine and wind turbine blades.
During thunderstorms, wind turbines are often struck by lightning, resulting in significant damage. Blades have been known to explode, whilst the key mechanical components have been destroyed and rendered ineffective.
Lightning Protection Systems are installed to safeguard your wind turbines in the event that they are struck by lightning, as the LPS technology discharges electrical current, allowing the current to pass through a receptor to the earth, through the utilization of Surge Protection Measures (SPM’s).
