Wind Turbine Damage Restoration
When we talk about power, it’s impossible not to think about the world’s demand for energy and the global trend towards renewable energies like wind power. As a rule, the larger the wind turbine, the more lucrative it is, but it is also more prone to problems. Once the warranty period expires, downtime, repair, and failure costs are the responsibility of the operator. If things go wrong - for example, if you experience wind turbine blade damage - both operators and insurers are dependent on a service team with short response times to keep downtime and failure costs to a minimum.
On land and at sea, BELFOR's industry-experienced wind turbine damage restoration teams have been successfully restoring on- and offshore wind turbines for more than a decade.
How Long Does A Wind Turbine Last?
On average, a modern, high-quality wind turbine will last for around 20 years – although this can be extended with the right environmental conditions and maintenance.
Several factors can affect the longevity of wind turbines. Mold and general wear over the years can shorten the lifespan of a wind turbine, as can internal machine damage. As well as this, damage from disasters including fire, water, and storms can have a huge impact on the lifespan of a wind turbine.
Whether it’s long-term damage from general wear or something more pressing such as a wind turbine damaged in a storm , it is vital the wind turbine is restored and maintained quickly and efficiently to ensure it continues to operate at its full potential. This is where BELFOR can help.
How Can BELFOR Help With Wind Turbine Blade Damage?
Our wind power teams are generally comprised of six staff, including three Alpine climbers, two trained restorers, and one crew manager. These compact teams offer the most flexibility with a minimal safety risk when working on wind turbine damage restoration. Each stage of the restoration project is agreed upon in close consultation with the operator and insurance provider, and all stages are documented from start to finish.
