Key features for offshore wind services

Corrective offshore wind maintenance

Corrective maintenance consists of repairing breakdowns or performing unscheduled emergency maintenance. The data analysis and equipment control involved in corrective maintenance is vital for providing comprehensive offshore wind services and helps identify any potential incidents in real time. To minimize the impact of these corrective actions, we keep a supply a of offshore turbine spare parts and critical components in the wind farms or in our warehouses.

Predictive offshore wind maintenance

Predictive actions such as oil analysis, vibration measurements and thermography are also performed as part of our offshore wind energy services to anticipate any slowly-developing malfunctions and minimize any unforeseen breakdowns.

Preventative offshore wind maintenance

Preventive maintenance refers to all maintenance actions that are programmed in the offshore wind turbine maintenance manual (operations and regular inspections), which are necessary to guarantee that your turbines operate under optimum conditions for their entire lifecycle..
