Our blade inspectors are not only specially trained rope access personnel but also qualified rotor blade experts. They work hand in hand with our engineering department to deliver the following services:
Industry experience has proven that after two years of operation the possibility of damages on rotor blades increases as the blades begin to wear from exposure to elements & other influences. After five years of operation annual inspections are strongly recommended. Exposed glass fibre is not resistant to ultraviolet rays and will begin to absorb water. We work according to Principles for Monitoring the Condition Based Maintenance of Wind Turbines to ensure the delivery of inspection reports to the highest standards.
Lightning strike damages, open trailing edges, failure of leading edge protection are common damages on rotor blades as is corrosion and hydraulic oil pollution on wind turbine towers. VIWA composite blade repair experts are working according to the latest repair standards.
We will clean your towers and blades with low impact, biodegradable cleaning agents and experienced operations from pre-saturated cleaning wipes to heavy jet wash equipment, depending on the kind of pollution. VIWA technicians have a wide range of experience on cleaning rotor blades and turbine towers as standalone operations or in combination with blade inspections during their inspection tours.
VIWA is forefront of Innovation. Our inventions include the unique environmental tents for on-site repairs reducing costs of blade transportation (no other tent system can withstand the elements as VIWA dome tents). We have developed state of the art HD Video reports for clients as well as a small mobile tower platform (unique to VIWA).
