Onshore & Offshore Wind Turbines Maintenance | AlpAccess

Onshore & Offshore Wind Turbines Maintenance

Wind turbine services for offshore and onshore wind turbines, conducted safely with IRATA certified rope access technicians, in teams of minimum 3 persons ensuring fast access at lower costs, compared with other access methods.

Our teams work fast, maintaining at a minimum the period of time in which the turbine is stopped. In Dobrogea, we can intervene from our base camp established in Navodari, Constanta.

The properly supervised rope access team is also capable of conducting rescues with their own equipment not using the turbine’s emergency descender.

Until present, we have provided wind turbines services in many locations, like: Tulcea, Cogealac, Oravita, Horia (Harsova), Ramnicu Sarat, for our clients Nordex Energy, General Electric Power and Energy, Gestamp Renewables International, Hydro Wind Power, Wind Power Energy, Monsson and many others.

Wind Turbines Maintenance Services

1 EVACUATOR: Life Saving System

Evacuator Logo

AlpAccess is an authorized installer for EVACUATOR rescue system.

EVACUATOR is shortening the evacuation time from the wind turbine, in case of accidents or fire.

2 Blade Inspections and Repairs

Alexit Logo

AlpAccess is an authorized applicator for Alexit Blade reparations. During their lifetime of almost 20 years, the blades have to bear huge loads that can lead to their damage. AlpAccess performs inspections and repairs to wind turbine blades with epoxy or polyester resins and also, with fiber glass or carbon fibre.


Laser Alignment
Analysis of Vibration

3 Laser Alignment and Measurement / Analysis of Vibration

The wind turbines capacity and optimal operation are conditioned by the precise tuning of the components. Our teams perform vibration measurement and analysis with short times and excellent results using laser alignment equipment of the highest quality.


4 Thermographic Analysis during Maintenance

To prevent components damage, we check how they operate under normal thermal conditions using the thermographic cameras.

Thermographic Analysis

Tightening the bolts
Bolts tightening verification

5 Tightening the bolts and bolts tightening verification

We use hydraulic bolt tightening equipment when we operate. Our equipment can be used for any type of wind turbine. Tightening the bolts at the moment of operations is verified both in a dynamic manner and by using ultrasonic measuring equipment.


6 Inspections using Drones

Drones

We use drones for quick inspections on the blades and for inspecting the exterior of the wind turbines. Using Site Scan system provided by 3D - Robotics, our drones can easily reach hardly accessible areas where they deliver real-time high quality images. Our pilots, former military pilots of combat aircraft (MIGs) and helicopters, with hundreds of flight hours, ensure safe flight of drones and obtaining high definition images.
