Wind energy is an important element in the context of the energy turnaround. In terms of sustainability and the exploitation of all potentials, we support operators with qualified overall expert reports on the lifetime extension of WTs after the expiry of the 20-year operating license. IDASWIND's lifetime extension reports provide specific information on the prospects and conditions for a safe further operation of each wind turbine.
The location plays a decisive role for the lifetime extension. The real conditions at the site and the development of the environment during the operating period form the basis for a qualified report on further operation. Based on this data, we evaluate the delta of theory and reality with our procedure.
- WT-specific site analysis
- Consideration of structural changes of the location within the operating period
- Wind and turbulence data
Our many years of experience in the design and development of wind turbines enable us to create generic models as a basis for load comparison. Our precise and detailed models enable us to make additional specific statements on individual components of the wind turbine.
- Creation of the generic models in-house
- Wide base of models available
The central element of our process is load comparison. Here we use all of our experience from design and development to generate the highest level of information. Changes in the surrounding wind farm constellation are taken into account as well as downtimes or the replacement of components of the turbine under consideration.
- Location - design loads
- Stages of life WEA/ WP
- Site and system configuration
The result of our in-house developed process, which conforms to guidelines, is a detailed proof of the individual components of your wind turbine. From this, in addition to the pure lifetime extension, preventive activities can also be derived, which exploit additional potential for lifetime extension and indicate future repair and maintenance requirements.
- Component-related statement about lifetime extension potential
- Clarity about future repair requirements
- Basis for a real economic analysis and evaluation of the site
Our certified partners for practical application have many years of experience in the field of testing and repairing wind turbines of all concepts and power classes. We offer a high availability and complete service with the focus on the lifetime extension of the wind turbine.
- Exclusively certified partners
- Many years of experience
- All concepts and performance classes
- High local availability
With IDASWIND Investment we accompany investors on the way to their own turbine or wind farm. In addition to our expertise, we are also available as co-investor. In the future we plan to realize our own projects.
The origin of IDASWIND can be found in our design and development division. With IDASWIND Design we support our clients worldwide in the realization of individual wind turbine concepts and the optimization of existing turbines.
With IDASWIND Analytics, we support operators with our demand-oriented service including single component detection. In this way, we provide you with a secure basis until repowering or until the maximum uptime is reached.
IDASWIND Service is your partner for individual topics concerning the operation of your WT or park. We will be happy to advise and support you with our expertise and experience as well as our extensive and resilient network.
