The implications if a wind turbine is offline for unscheduled maintenance can be approximately £10,000 in lost revenue a day, and when factoring in the additional costs of support vessels, technicians and equipment for repairs it could run into the millions.
For large-scale wind turbine assets and auxiliary equipment, unaddressed minor problems or oversights can quickly escalate into costly stoppages, lost revenue and expensive repairs.
CWind is on hand for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance with fully trained technicians for turbine, cable and foundation maintenance, utilising a dedicated fuel-efficient fleet of purpose-built CTVs; all the elements required to complement OEM contracts in one bespoke package.
CWind takes the headache out of preparing, planning and executing inspections with comprehensive packages tailored to each customer and project requirement.
Our turbine technicians undertake 100 and 500 hour servicing, gearbox inspections, generator alignment, “wet” service, pitch cylinder inspection & change out. Our specialist technicians also perform endoscope inspections and evaluations on gearboxes and main bearings’, minimising turbine down time.
CWind’s partnerships with key qualified specialists facilitates our statutory inspection works. These works range from simple inspection and certification of lifting equipment and self-retracting lanyards, to inspection and certification of life saving equipment.
