Damage assessment of main components

When your wind turbine is damaged, it can be hard to know exactly where the damage originated. Because of that, it can be necessary to perform an examination to assess the extent of the damages.

Do you require a damage assessment of your components?

A damage examination is a part of the process, to determine whether a damage is covered by your insurance company. Therefore, it is important that the examination is performed with such detail and precision, that the insurance company can use the examination in their damage assessment.

With WindTech's extensive know how of wind turbine components, we are perfectly suited to advise and help you with a thorough and precise damage examination. From our workshop in Denmark, we can perform a cause-of-damage analysis based on our damage examination.

If it is concluded that the component should be refurbished or discarded, WindTech are also available for consultation and guidance about this.


What does a damage examination include?

Depending on the nature of the damage, your component may be covered by your insurance company. To cover the damage, it is necessary to determine the origination and extent of the damage. At WindTech we can disassemble your component to perform a detailed and thorough examination.

We assure you that all parts will be inspected, measured and examined thoroughly.

As a part of the examination, we review all main components, which cover:

  • Gearbox
  • Generator
  • Yaw system
  • Main shaft

In special cases, a component may be so damaged, that it cannot be refurbished. In this case, we will contact you and let you decide whether we should discard or keep the component.

From our damage examination, your insurance company can perform a damage assessment.
​Depending on the result, it will be up to you and your insurance company to determine how we proceed.
Regardless of what the result may be, WindTech can always provide consultation or guidance.
