Choosing the right blade maintenance regime

Managing large fleets of wind turbines across North America, Jon Salmon of EDF Renewable Services - who spoke at last year's Blade Operations and Maintenance Forum - has some advice on how to set up a diverse blade maintenance programme. Much will depend on individual characteristics of a project’s fleet and site, so working these out is key.

What do attendees say? 

Senior Vice President

“It was a great get together of both technical and operational experts, a good blend of hands-on engineering and real world folks out there. For this event in particular, there was great open dialogue on the trends in repair, maintenance and inspection of blades.”

Eastern Regional Manager

"I’ve been actually encouraging our asset managers and people who don’t understand the wind business to go to your conferences because in 15 years that’s the most I’ve learned about blades, in 15 years of the wind industry."
