Wind Turbine Blade Inspection
Utilising a variety of access techniques for inspection, GEV are able to provide a fast and effective service to complete the detailed analysis of all aspects of damage to the 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.
Wind turbine blade inspections can also be performed using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) and with the use of blade access platforms for all activity, if this is a site preferred method.
Our technicians are trained to the highest of OEM standards and generally spend over a month completing intensive training prior to being certified for repair activity.
