Webinar: Trends, strategies, and technologies for reducing wind turbine downtime

      Improving turbine reliability and uptime is critical to reducing a wind farm operator’s Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) and remaining competitive in today’s renewable market. While in the past, much of an operator’s focus has been on improving the design and operation of gearbox assemblies in order to reduce downtime, there is

Fall Protection Inspection and Care, what you don’t know can hurt you

Wind Turbines can be a dirty environment full of various kinds of oils, paints, solvents, and lubricants.  Daily inspection for obvious wear and tear like cuts and rips are normal but what about the dirt, oil and other contaminants that can get on the product, are we paying attention to the less obvious hazards?
