The Head of Central Maintenance at EDP Renewables said:

"Very frequently when a maintenance budget needs to be reduced, the blade is one of the first elements to be sacrificed. But that is a great error. To inspect and to repair small deteriorations of blades regularly is one of the most effective strategies to avoid major increments in future OPEX."  Give your blades the attention they deserve at Windpower Monthly's award-winning Blade Inspection, Damage & Repair Forum.
