Rotor blade inspections on wind turbines

We inspect the rotor blades of your wind turbine right from production up to smooth operation!

The rotor blades must withstand enormous loads during the operating of a wind turbine.
They are permanently exposed to an extremely dynamic load spectrum.

Rotor imbalance of wind turbines: Detect and Adjust

Optimal operation of wind turbines: correct rotor adjustment and balancing!

A major cause of the dynamic problems found in wind turbines today is rotor imbalance.
Routine inspections have shown that approximately 81 percent of the wind turbines, inspected without special cause, exceed their design limit values for rotor imbalance.

Assessment & Inspection for Continued Operation of Wind Turbines

Calculation of the possible total service life for a safe continued operation of your wind turbine!

The lifetime of a wind turbine is a minimum of 20 years according to IEC 61400 [1]. However, differences between the design loads and the actual loads on-site can lead to the possibility of operating the WEC longer than the design life. Using an aero elastic simulation the individual overall lifetime can be calculated per main component.
