Wind turbines are most often damaged by environmental hazards. Storms, strong winds, lightning, and hail can all damage a turbine. Meanwhile, the environment with a lot of dirt will wear the blade. Offshore wind turbines are susceptible to high waves and corrosion by sea salt.
Wind turbines are built to last 20 to 30 years. During operation, the wind turbine will need to replace several parts, such as the gearbox and the propeller.
Repairing the gearbox, propeller or generator is extremely complicated. Spare parts are expensive and repair work requires long downtime. Therefore, you need to have an effective periodic maintenance plan, do not wait until damaging turbines and propellers to repair.
Wind energy is a fast-growing renewable energy industry, which means wind turbines are becoming more popular and essential in large-scale industrial projects. However, wind turbine parts, especially blades which have a large, sturdy structure but are easily damaged even light movement. As a result, the wind turbine blade repair and maintenance industry are more prevalent […]
