Aerones were contracted to perform Vestas V80 wind turbine blade grease and accumulated dust removal using automated rope robotic system. Additionally, all lightning receptor conductivity tests were conducted to ascertain the lightning protection system proper functioning. Several malfunctioning receptors were found and reported to the client for remedial works.
To ascertain cleaning quality control, all of the turbine blades were photographed before and after the cleaning took place.
It took Aerones team 18 hours to complete the full cleaning process, close visual inspection and LPS tests (10 receptors per blade). All of the inspection findings were reported to the client. Data stored on Aerones secure servers for convenient access. PDF format reports were also made available to the client.
