Rope Partner, a rope access maintenance, inspection and performance enhancement service provider, announced today a new partnership with Gladiators Cleaning to expand high-quality, safe, and cost-effective wind turbine cleaning services to new and existing clients with patented technology. Gladiators provides wind-turbine power-washing services.
“Partnering with Gladiators, we will now be offering internal and external tower cleanings, including blades and nacelles at a very attractive fixed price,” shared Eric Stanfield, President of Rope Partner, based in Santa Cruz, CA. “Our goal is to enable our clients to better amortize technician mobilizations and reduce Standby by offering the ability to complete more work scopes while on site.”
Cleanliness of wind turbines is important for worker safety, a clean environment, preventive maintenance, and for visual aspects, as well as maximum performance. In perpetual search of value-added services,
“This new relationship perfectly aligns with this goal and we look forward to working with Gladiators, who we have found to have a solid safety culture, work ethic and an environmental awareness we respect,” said Stanfield.
The new partnership aims to keep cleaning projects on schedule no matter how dirty the wind turbine. Gladiators’ patented cleaning tool uses citrus-based cleaners and microbes to eliminate hydrocarbons, along with extensive wastewater removal measures. It has proven to be the most cost-effective turbine cleaning solution for the interior and exterior of towers and the nacelle, spinners and hubs, and blades.
“Gladiators believes, with our innovative cleaning techniques and Rope Partner’s operational skills, we will be able to provide our customers with the best wind turbine generator cleaning service in the industry,” said Broque Fraughton, Owner of Gladiators Cleaning. “Together we will be able to keep up with the demand at a competitive price for our existing clients and new clients to come.”
The Rope Partner team will attend the upcoming Wind Operations Conference in Dallas, April 16 to 17, and is available to discuss the enhanced wind turbine cleaning services further.
