GEV Wind Power’s first set of onshore trials for its blade maintenance Habitat have been successfully completed. The Habitat was installed on Power Climber and Kaeufer access platforms in varying weather conditions and ranging between 30 metres and 100 metres high.

The Habitat enables technicians to conduct essential repairs on remote wind turbines, whilst remaining sheltered from the elements and provides greater scope to schedule repairs throughout the year, mitigating adverse seasonal weather conditions. GEV Wind Power will also be able to offer a 24 hour working window using fixed lighting within the Habitat, ensuring complex repairs are completed. The trials also enabled GEV technicians to test the company’s bespoke blade maintenance App, I-RIS (Intuitive Reporting and Inspection System), which facilitates timely project management as data is communicated, near real-time, via satellite to a web-based monitoring and reporting tool.
