The Front Cover

Studies of early offshore turbines showed that the impact of the harsh conditions on the whole turbine structure was much higher than expected. Only proper maintenance procedures, including periodic surveys at predetermined time intervals, can secure the long-term production efficiency and yield from offshore wind turbines and their blades. The required technologies for maintenance on offshore installations are currently being developed and more are becoming available every year. The image on the front cover shows automated NDT inspection on offshore rotor blades by SPRAT rope access.
