Altitec wraps up Amakhala work
Blade inspections carried out on 54 Nordex units at South African wind farm
Altitec has completed end of warranty blade inspections at the Amakhala wind farm in South Africa’s Eastern Cape.
The work, which was carried out in partnership with Nordex Energy South Africa, covered inspections on 54 turbines, each with a height of 91 metres.
Inspections started in December 2016 and were completed this summer, Altitec said.
Nordex Energy South Africa managing director Anne Henschel said: “We know that turbine blades that are regularly inspected and maintained to a high standard remain cost-efficient.
“By partnering with Altitec, our clients can be assured that their turbines will perform at optimal levels for as long as possible, reducing costs and improving overall wind farm performance in the process.”
Altitec Group managing director Tom Dyffort said: “Carrying out blade inspections and maintenance on 54 turbines is a significant undertaking, but the skills and experience of our technicians allowed us to complete this work as quickly as possible, while adhering to the high standards Altitec’s customers have come to expect.”
