Wind Farm Life Extension - Structural Inspections
As wind assets approach design life, the opportunity to continue safe and efficient operation is a key value lever for wind turbine operators.
Management of key integrity risks is the foundation of a comprehensive wind farm life extension strategy.
As one of the key components directly impacting the risk of structural collapse, health assessment of structural bolted connections should form a vital part of any competent life extension programme.
Well maintained, high quality bolted connections can support many years of additional safe and economical wind turbine operation whilst lack of attention to bolt condition can be severley life limiting.
Combining the engineering capability and wind industry expertise of Risktec Solutions, part of the TÜV Rheinland Group, with EchoBolt's high quality specialist inspection services we have successfully delivered integrity inspections for wind farms approaching end of life, supporting a comprehensive validation of suitability for continued operation.
