TECHNICAL INSPECTION

TECHNICAL INSPECTION

When the wind blows the technical equipment has to work – without fail. A high level of availability will guarantee you maximum energy generation. To make sure the technical side works impeccably, vortex energy offers you as a service technical inspection. Wind turbines are already regularly inspected by the manufacturers. Our additional services with detailed reports and photographic and video records increase the availability to a major degree. Every individual turbine is checked through and through by our specialists. This includes an inspection of the transformer, pressure measurements in the hydraulic system, a check of the tower and of the occupational safety equipment. In comprehensive detailed analyses we get down to the nitty-gritty using an endoscope and infrared camera. We check the gear system for cracks caused by wear and tear, we conduct viscosity tests on the oil, we check the switchgear, the cables, the power converters and the alignment of the generator, we perform measurement and vibration analyses and much, much more. In this way we prevent secondary damage and enhance your installation’s value. The technical inspection can be booked separately as an additional service independently of the operational management.
