Rotor blades have to withstand heavier loads than almost any other
component of a wind energy system. Depending on the intensity of the load
as well as the type and quality of the manufacturing process, defects caused
by wear will occur sooner or later. Design and manufacturing defects may
also become apparent. Regular inspections, professional maintenance,

Foundation and Tower
The tower and the foundation must both function correctly
for the system to operate safely. The risk of damage, cracks,
spalling and corrosion increases the older the system gets, so
the stability of these two components must be verified regularly.
The foundation can also be systematically monitored and
documented as part of a full maintenance contract.

Corrosion damage to the tower and foundation is a com-

are affected, then this may endanger operation and stability

Our refurbishment concepts for the tower and foundation
provide long-term corrosion protection by preventing water
from penetrating. The concept is based on our highly elastic
sealing system CPS (Concrete Power Seal) or PPS (Protect
Power Seal): The system, which consists of liquid plastic
materials based on PMMA resins, is flexible enough to offer
reliable protection even at locations with extreme con-
ditions (onshore and offshore). The following work steps
have proven effective:

Transformer Substations Onshore
If the transformer substation fails, then the connected power generation
systems, such as wind farms, solar parks or biogas plants, can no longer
feed power into the grid. Depending on the severity and duration of the
fault, considerable losses in earnings can be the result. The quality of
maintenance of transformer substations is therefore essential for the
feed-in balance of the wind farm.

Expert Reports and Consulting
Wind energy systems today are managed and serviced like large-scale po-
wer plants more than they ever have been in the past. In particular in the
offshore market, industrial standards for quality assurance are applied
and further developed as early as the construction planning phase. This
procedure can be compared to the quality management of conventional
power stations, and it is applied at an early stage in the manufacturing
processes of the system components. Key indicators for optimal main-
tenance are also determined during this phase. Industrial standards are
