Wind Turbine Borescope Inspection
An innovative company is taking power generation to new heights with wind power. They believe clean energy doesn’t have to be expensive so they’ve been building wind farms that can produce energy more cost effectively than fossil fuels. Wind turbines have a lifespan of about 20 years, and require periodic inspections to achieve this longevity. The company recently purchased a ViewTech articulating video borescope to inspect the wind turbines. These inspections can reveal hairline cracks, corrosion, pitting, rubbing and other defects. The video borescope allows maintenance technicians to inspect gearboxes, blades and all parts of the wind turbine that are not easily accessible.
