Rope Access teams

 

Our Rope Access teams consists of technicians, who through 10 and up to 24 years of employment at a variety of blade manufactures such as for example Vestas, LM Wind Power and Siemens, have acquired an immense and invaluable knowledge of blades, their design and how they are built.

In addition, our Rope Access technicians are by fare amongst the absolute most experienced in the world, and are with high accuracy able to perform even extremely difficult repairs, fully following manufacturer developed certified repair instructions.

All our Rope Access technicians, completely masters all the required processes to perfection. From identifying visually, each damaged fiber layer as well as type, to performing the extremely difficult phasing/chamfering procedure, in compliance with the required chamfering values, to performing a perfect casting with a correct fiber/resin percentage, are all within our technians daily routine professional capabilities.

Blade Partners provides relevant documentation on our technicians work and training experience before a project is initiated.

Our Rope Access technicians are capable of repairing 70% of all damages up in the air, from Rope Access

Gondola/Crane teams

 

Our Gondola/Crane teams consists of technicians, who through 9 and up to 25 years of employment at a variety of blade manufactures such as for example Vestas, LM Wind Power and Siemens, have acquired an immense and invaluable knowledge of blades, their design and how they are built.

In addition, our Gondola/Crane technicians are by fare amongst the absolute most experienced in the world, and are with high accuracy able to perform even extremely difficult and large repairs in the air, fully following manufacturer developed certified repair instructions.

All our Gondola/Crane technicians, completely masters all the required processes to perfection. From identifying visually, each damaged fiber layer as well as type, to performing the extremely difficult phasing/chamfering procedure, in compliance with the required chamfering values, to performing a perfect casting with a correct fiber/resin percentage, are all within our technians daily routine professional capabilities.

Blade Partners have 2 units of our own Gondola access platforms, manufactured by NIHON BISOH CO., LTD. for affordable blade access. Our Gondola/Crane technicians can repair 97% of all damages up in the air, from these platforms or from a crane with a man basket. Only on very rare occasions, it is necessary to position the blade on the ground, to remove all pressure on the internal webs/spar, during for example an all the way through repair at the root end, in the blades root laminate reinforcement layers.

Maintenance and repairs

 

Blades are very complex parts of a wind turbine. They are constructed from numerous layers of different fiber types and composite materials of various kinds. Furthermore, a properly completed certified repair of reinforcement layers in a wind turbine blade, requires extremely complicated technical skills and techniques, for the person who are to perform such a repair, and in order to restore the full strength of each damaged fiber layer.

Becoming a good blade technician is not an easy task, and takes years and years of practice, training, and experience. Blade Partners can provide you with the utmost security and assurance that your wind turbine blades are in the best condition, both from an operational point of view, as well as regarding the safety of the surroundings of your wind turbine.

We have a certified and approved repair solution for every blade type and for each manufacturer.

We repair when others give up, and still provides customers with the longest warranty in the business.

Warranty support

 

None of the blade manufacturers can claim explicitly that their blades are not exposed to manufacturing defects. On the contrary, many blades leave the manufacturing facilities with hidden internal defects, such as wrinkles, composite cracks, resin pools, foreign objects, dry fiber areas etc. Many of these defects are fortunately discovered by the manufacturers’ own quality control, while others are never found until they appear visually on a blade, after the blade has already been operating for some years.

Blade Partners can provide consultancy and full support in warranty claims worldwide. We know the exact weaknesses of every blade type and every manufacturer, and can support Japanese wind farm owners, so that possible claims are submitted in time, and before the warranty period expires.

Wear and tear

 

Lightning strikes, erosion, impact, inoperative conductor systems, and normal abrasion are some of the issues facing the blades when they commence in operation on a wind turbine. We have manufacturer certified solutions for all issues and for all damages. Additionally, we only use original, and certified blade spare parts, products, and materials. If an accident occurs, and a wind turbine has to be kept out of operation due to severe blade damage, our objective is to prioritize such incidents in our planning to limit your loss of production as much as humanly possible.
