Leading Edge Repair

The Rope Robotics Solution

The repair process

The surface is prepared by sanding, which is done to ensure the blade is clean and smooth, and that the surface has the roughness needed to get the optimal adhesiveness.

The blade is cleaned with isopropyl alcohol to remove the remaining dust, grease and water from the surface.

Afterwards a long lasting leading edge protection (LEP) is applied. The robot controls the application of LEP based on predefined parameters. The parameters are used during the complete execution and guarantee a constant and uniform work method, which again ensures the quality..

Every step is throughout the operation compiled in a detailed image documentation.

The repair process

Logistic set-up

We guarantee the most efficient work-flow possible executed by specialized, certified and well training manpower.

  • We customize the set-up to reflect the number of turbines

  • We plan and execute the complete operation

  • We bring our own Mobile Robot Control Centre

  • We move the equipment on site to ensure the most efficient work-flow possible

  • We bring specialized, certified and trained manpower

  • We stop and start the turbines our self, securing lowest downtime possible

Quality and documentation

The Rope Robotic solution guarantee a high level of quality and documentation

  • The robot repairs the damage with uniform accuracy
  • The robot applies a high strength surface coating
  • The robot ensures repair consistency no matter work position, weather conditions and repetitive tasks
  • The robot documents every process step from start till the final repair result
  • The robots are operated by a specialized Robot Pilot

Safety and environment

  • Minimize the hazardous work at heights
  • No humans exposed to dangerous materials or detergents
  • A minimum of chemicals used in the process
  • No humans doing the physical demanding and repeatable tasks

Benefits for your business

  • Recovery of optimal wind turbine performance / power production (AEP)
  • High quality automated blade maintenance
  • Detailed position specific documentation of repair process and results
  • Avoid long term structural damage
  • Independent service provider
  • Reduced health and safety risks
