Composite Rotor Blade Repair

Rotor blades are susceptible to multiple forms of damage during operation, ranging from lightning strike to open trailing edges and failure of leading edge protection.

Altitec works to address these common failures, by delivering a specialist composite rotor blade repair service, according to DNV GL quality standards.

Blade repair on or offsite.

Our experienced rope access technicians and engineers aim to complete as many blade repairs in-situ as possible, reducing the overall time and cost of service, and making the most of allocated service periods to minimise turbine downtime.

For more extensive blade repair operations, self-propelled Käufer platforms provide an alternative access solution. Altitec is able to supply and manage the use of these platforms, in conjunction with our rope access services.

When up-tower repairs aren’t possible, we are also able to undertake composite blade repairs on the ground – either on-site or at a local Altitec workshop.
