Windtech International July August 2024 issue






The Front Cover

The wind sector context and situation in Spain favours the life extension of wind farms over repowering, so the search for new and innovative solutions for extending the operating life of wind turbines, while keeping the maintenance costs at acceptable levels, is the focus of many wind sector stakeholders. On page 6, Tecnalia presents LEO, an autonomous ultrasonic monitoring system for main shafts.
