Blade Inspection, Damage and repair forum 2016


“Blades usually do their work in a discreet manner without claiming a major role. So there is a great temptation not to pay attention to the care of the blades. Very frequently when a maintenance budget needs to be reduced, the blade is one of the first elements to be sacrificed. But that is a great error. To inspect and to repair small deteriorations of blades regularly is one of the most effective strategies to avoid major increments in future OPEX.”

Eduardo García Pérez , Head Of Central Maintenance Europe, EDP Renewables
