Keeping wind power online: An interview with Tom Dyffort of Altitec

In September this year, blade repair and inspection specialist, Altitec, announced a partnership with a leading manufacturer of on- and offshore wind turbines, to provide end of warranty (EOW) blade inspections and repairs in the UK and Australia, thereby expanding the company’s global presence. Under the terms of the contract, Altitec will provide EOW inspections at 100 sites throughout the UK, in addition to carrying out further EOW blade repairs in Victoria, Australia,.

Blade damage is the most common cause of downtime across the wind energy sector, according to a recent report from renewable energy insurer, GCube, and EOW inspections and repairs are an essential part of ensuring long-term operational performance. The end of the warranty period is a crucial phase for both manufacturer and project owner, since it marks a transition in where responsibility lies for technical issues experienced on site.

REM talked to Altitec’s Managing Director, Tom Dyffort, to find out more.
