Bear Inspect Project – November 2010

windturbineWe are also involved in a European project researching advanced condition monitoring systems for the evaluation of the overall condition of wind turbines. The UK Government has set targets to increase contribution of renewables to UK electricity by 10% in 2010, with an aspiration for 20% by 2010; resulting in an increasing number of wind turbines being installed.   

Applied Inspection were approached back in April 2008 to undertake Eddy Current testing as part of this project The Eddy Current testing forms one element of a condition monitoring system which aims to produce better reliability standards, therefore reducing corrective maintenance costs.
