As the owner of a wind turbine, you want to be certain about the technical condition of your wind turbine and any maintenance work performed by third parties.
Æwind can perform the following inspections for you:
During the development and implementation phase, Æwind can perform:
- Technical due diligence
- Inspection during the production of the wind turbine
- Supervision during the installation and commissioning of the wind turbine
Æwind has already carried out numerous quality inspections. You can consult the reference list using the following link: quality inspections.
Supervision and inspection work for wind turbines:
Æwind has developed its own supervision and inspection programme for supervision and inspection work on wind turbines during the various project phases, using a step-by-step model.
In the programme, the scope and content of the supervision and inspection work is subdivided into several categories. The following overview presents a brief description per category.
|Categories for supervision and inspection work on wind turbines|
Technical visual inspection of components accessible without tools:
Limited to sensory assessment (by hearing, seeing, feeling and smelling) of the components.
An expansion of the technical visual inspection according to category A by opening hatches, covers, housings, etc. using simple tools. An inspection (internal, if accessible) of pivots, gearboxes, etc., using simple inspection methods such as measuring rods, magnetic rods and fluorescent penetrating liquids.
|C||Expansion of the category B inspection by measurements and endoscopy (the type of measurement to be decided depending on the necessity).|
|D||Expansion of the category C inspection by performing extensive physical tests: stop/start, emergency stop, emergency shutdown, sensors, rotor lock systems, overspeed, etc. (the type of test to be decided depending on the necessity)|
The use of specific checklists ensures that supervision and inspection work is carried out in a focused way and as efficiently as possible. Inspection of all crucial components and aspects of a wind turbine is thus guaranteed.
After each inspection, you will receive a clear and detailed report.
