RES Complete Major Component Replacement
The task, which involved the removal of the rotor and nacelle and then a rebuild of the turbine, took five days onsite and a team of six engineers.
Brian McDaid, head of turbine O&M at RES, oversaw the task. He said: “As a growing number of turbines come towards the end of their natural life, some will require major maintenance due to wear and tear, there is an opportunity for us to offer our O&M expertise to the wider market.
“For this reason we have re-engineered a suite of universal tools, including support frames for rotors and nacelles and heavy lifting brackets, or that can be used on various turbines, allowing us to offer competitive turbine repair services to asset managers and developers around the UK.
“We have already completed repairs on both Vestas and Siemens turbines, and expect demand to grow significantly over the coming years.”
