Wind Turbines

Overview

Wind turbines remain a popular and importantly growing source of renewable energy and are continuing to play a key role in the production of clean electricity in the future.
Wind turbine companies are focused on installing, operating, and maintaining wind turbine infrastructure. Their performance is based on their capability to maximize revenue and reduce operational cost from their assets.

Need

It is essential to perform inspections on wind turbines in order to maintain their optimal performance and extend their lifespan when using them to generate wind-powered energy. Wind Turbines operators depend on these inspections to get an in-depth understanding of the asset condition and provide maintenance in a mannerly timeframe to ensure smooth operations and profitability.
Inspecting wind turbines is a challenging and risky task due to the towering height and intricate design of the turbines. This process is complex, takes long hours and requires several field personnel to be on site for safety. Inspections are critical to identifying visible damage or defects, structural inspection of the tower and foundation, and other problems that result in severe weather.
