Wind power continues to be a dominant player in the global energy markets. According to recent analysis by BloombergNEF, the wind market had a record setting year in 2020, commissioning nearly 100 gigawatts (GW) of new projects. As installed capacity of wind power continues to grow globally, the warranty period of a large number of wind turbines is coming to an end, making wind farm maintenance and repair a key component to maintaining the growing industry.
For all you wind operators looking to service and repair your wind farms for optimal performance, it’s important to understand there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to servicing your towers and blades. There is a menu of access methods available to perform at-height services like blade repairs, warranty, periodic and one-off inspections, mechanical services, as well as tower cleaning, and coating repairs. Each service plays a critical role in keeping your wind farm fully operational.
