Care for the crucial part
Visual Based Asset Integrity
Siemens Gamesa has developed Visual Based Asset Integrity, a web-based platform that combines Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and blade expert knowledge to provide accurate, actionable insight on blade condition status for individual wind turbines as well as the whole fleet. It is a digital solution designed to support customers in optimizing blade performance, ensuring life-time blade health and reducing O&M cost related blade services.
Blade Integrity Management (BIM)
The Siemens Gamesa Blade Integrity Management service module offers a thorough assessment of the condition of the blade by our experts. It can minimize downtime and improve turbine performance. BIM comes in two different variations:
- BIM I (Inspection): Following a comprehensive inspection plan, Siemens Gamesa issues a validated status report on the condition of the blades including an assessment and prioritization of blade repairs that will be necessary in the future.
- BIM R&M (Repairs and Monitoring): We observe the performance of the blade in response to the conditions during inspections and any implemented repair. This includes the planning and prioritization of necessary tasks, the execution of repair work, and further monitoring of non-critical findings.
Safeguard your leading edge for life
This durable and cost-optimized leading edge protection mitigates the impact of erosion to the leading edge. PowerEdge™ Care is a lifetime solution and thereby prevents reoccurring repairs, minimizes the turbine’s downtime and provides an AEP upside relative to eroded blades.
- Optimized application method: Rope technicians install flexible pre-casted shells, to the desired length. A liquid adhesive is used to apply the shells directly onto the eroded surface of the blades, eliminating the need for repairing non-structural damage to the leading edge – thereby saving on installation time, steps and materials.
- Best-in-class: The product has been extensively tested and exhibits best-in-class performance in terms of erosion resistance, adhesion strength and aerodynamic impact. The overall solution is validated by Siemens Gamesa and ongoing certification by DNV GL.
