Bilfinger Salamis UK was tasked to support the retrofitting of aerofoils to onshore wind trubine generators, which were designed to improve performance of the blades.
The aerofoils each weighed around 1000kg and had to be assembled on the blade without crane support in a remote Texas location – using rope access and rigging only. Bilfinger assisted in the concept design and offered an end to end service, decommissioning the aerofoils and returning the blades to their original condition.
We delivered a competent OSHA certified rope access and rigging team, who were Siemens Blade B-Certified. They also designed a full shipping and transport solution for the aerofoils to support the installation process and protect the system.
