Maintenance

Blade-specific maintenance

If you are doing everything as you should, the wind turbine is maintained and inspected on a regular basis. Blades truly need this type of periodic care. It is important that direct action be taken to correct any weak spots, erosion and other early-stage damage. When it comes to this, an expert eye is invaluable. Preventive maintenance can save you considerable maintenance costs, noise nuisance and sizable consequential damage in the future.
