Altitec has completed end of warranty (EOW) blade inspections at the Amakhala Wind Farm in South African’s Eastern Cape. The inspections were undertaken in partnership with Nordex Energy South Africa. Under the terms of the contract, Altitec carried out EOW inspections on 54 turbines, each with a height of 91 metres.

Inspection work began on the first turbine blades in December 2016, and was completed this summer. EOW inspections and maintenance are essential to the successful long-term operation and financial returns. With the end of the warranty period, responsibility for assessing turbines moves from the original manufacturer to the project owner. By carrying out maintenance at this point, Nordex is helping to avoid any project downtime or financial losses later in the wind farm’s lifecycle.
