INSPECTIONS & TESTING
Proactively minimize & prevent serious damage to your components
PREVENT PERFORMANCE LOSS
Protecting your components from developing severe damage is critical to ensure your business case. Up-tower and down-tower inspections are an accurate and inexpensive way to assess how you can proactively minimize or even prevent serious damage to your components. Early discovery of potential damages contributes to the extension of turbine lifetime, to exceed the original 20-year life design, and ensure turbine availability when it is most profitable.

HIGH QUALITY, FLEXIBLE INSPECTION METHODS
Depending on turbine characteristics, customer preferences and site conditions, Aegis Onshore provides a broad range of inspection methods for assessing both OEM and owner mixed asset fleets. These methods include NDT, Digi-Scoping, Burst inspections, Borescope, Drone technology and Software analytics.
VISUAL, THERMOGRAPHY AND ULTRASONIC NON-DESTRUCTIVE INSPECTIONS
Regular Non-destructive based blade inspections help in identifying embedded problems and, at the same time, prevent small problems from developing into catastrophic issues. As a significant step forward in our service portfolio of inspection services, we offer Shearography. Shearography is an optimal NDT solution, tailored specifically for integrated quality control processes used in the qualification of material structural integrity.
Applicable materials include, but are not limited to:
- composite honeycomb
- composite overwrapped vessels (COPV)
- carbon-fiber (CFRP) main laminates
- Secondary adhesive bonds.
Irrespective and independent of size, shape, geometry and component complexity, shearography systems can be used to inspect for anomalies in the hardest to reach places.
Our highly skilled technicians can reliably find flaws in blades like:
- Impact damages
- Fiber waves and wrinkles
- Skin to core delamination
- Crack detection
- Main spar delams
- Adhesive disbond between the skins and main spar
- Various types of fatigue-related damages that inevitably come with time
