- Brushing up on Wind Turbine Maintenance Techniques
As the world looks towards more sustainable sources of energy generation, many countries are continuing to increase their investment in wind turbine technology, with China and the US leading the globe in the adoption of wind energy. In fact, it is widely expected that the global wind power market will reach 760.35 GW by 2020, as continents such as Europe continue to support wind power initiatives with new legislation to reduce carbon emissions. Whilst wind turbines are undoubtedly in demand, this increase in their adoption presents a number of challenges for windfarm owners and maintenance engineers, as turbines typically have a limited lifespan. Repairs are difficult to carry out, give that the replacement of parts can be costly and any engineering work needs to be carried out up to 100m off the ground. As a solution, many in the industry are focusing on improving the reliability of these devices at all costs. In this article, George Finley and Paul Kling from Morgan Advanced Materials explore some of the most effective maintenance techniques for wind turbine management, taking a look at the consequences of turbine failure.
