Give your blades the attention they deserve
Blades play a crucial role in the operations of a wind turbine, acting as the direct interfaces between the wind and the turbine. Any inefficiency in this first encounter can have major impacts on turbine production. When you then consider that blades face all sorts of climatic conditions such as rain, sand, snow, hail, and even lightning strikes, the case for why blades need
extraordinary care is clear.
Yet, blades are not always treated as their importance warrants. Often, they are neglected in maintenance strategies, resulting in unnecessary high costs and turbine downtime.
