Blade inspections: A photoscope for inspections from the ground
Specialists in blade inspections, we use new, high-precision equipment to perform inspections from the ground.
Since 2012, more than 5,109 blades have been inspected by our teams. We know the blades and their recurring faults. Our experts are dedicated to carrying out blade inspections on rope, but also from the ground with high performance equipment.
8.2 France is committed to adapting to the HSE policies of its customers and can therefore use tools other than rope to perform rotor blade inspections
In order to support our customers on their blade inspections and comply with their HSE policy, we have developed blade inspection technique from the ground. These technique require high performance equipment revealing structural defects which are difficult to see (cracks), but which are indicative of the mechanical weaknesses of the blade, and which must be detected as soon as possible.
Stop waiting for the summer period to perform your blade inspections!
We have tested and validated a 2,000mm focal length photoscope allowing us to obtain a truly precise examination and which provides real information on the state of the components. With this equipment, there are no post-processing doubts about the defect observed. The analysis by the expert is done directly on site using the zoom, filters, … to compensate for bad weather conditions such as light fog, gray and cloudy sky, light rain, etc.
How to properly ensure the longevity of your wind farm?
To ensure the best rentability of your wind assets, the priority is to ensure its longevity and control its costs. Having faults by an independent expert check and diagnose faults prevents bad surprises and maintenance costs.
Key stages are favorable for making an inventory: at the commissioning stage, after 2 years at the end of the warranty for major components, at the end of the maintenance contract or on occurences to be defined depending on the type of turbine and its environment. Our experts can advise you from their experience how to carry out a complete expertise after 8 years of operation.
The blades are major components which can impact the residual lifetime of the whole wind turbine…
Transformer, generator and blades are the major components in the operation of wind turbines. In addition to being tremendously expensive, their replacement is delicate and requires significant and expensive logistics. Unplanned production shutdowns very quickly impact availability.
