Blade Repair and Inspection

Flex Wind has a highly experienced team of blade technicians providing top quality repairs and maintenance of epoxy and polyester blades.

Our clients contract Flex Wind as they know, the service is delivered with above expected quality and with the least downtime possible of the turbines. Further Flex Wind gets the job done the first time, hence securing the investment of our clients.

The materials used are homologated by the principle blade producers, giving our clients the security to not encounter surprises.

Further advantage of Flex Wind is the exclusive access to the engineering department of those blade manufacturers, allowing to get not only a second opinion to our own technical department, but also repair instruction directly from the manufacturer.

Our technicians count with up to 20+ years experience with the production, maintenance and repairs of blade and are certified by IRATA, the only worldwide recognized certificate for industrial rope access. IRATA rope access methodology gives further the advantages of an unrivalled safety record, short set-up and dismantling time, positive environmental benefits and removes the need for invasive access equipment or disruption to a worksite.
