Throughout the regular operation period of 20 years wind turbines have experienced quite a bit. Depending on the turbine type, erection site and operating conditions, these experiences are quite varying.

Lifetime extension reports by IDASWIND incorporate circumstantial conditions and give wind turbine specific information on prospects and conditions for a safe continuation of operation.

They display an ideal combination of practical assessment and analytical part with comprehensive load calculations.

Lifetime Extension Report from Engineering Specialists…

stand for quality and significance. As a specialized wind turbine design and development office, the challenges faced during a lifetime extension analysis are part of our daily routine. Thanks to this, we know how important detailed load calculations are for assessing the structural safety and the “as-is” state of vital WTG components. Together with our partners, we offer you the complete lifetime extension report in compliance with the DIBt, DNV-GL regulations and BWE guidelines.

In doing so, we cover a broad spectrum of WTG types, e.g. Enercon, Vestas, Tacke / GE, Nordex, Nordtank and Führländer, just to name a few.

The Practical Part…

encompasses the expert’s evaluation of the wind turbine structural safety.
This part is conducted by our accredited or equivalently qualified assessors and appraisers:

  • On-site technical inspection and evaluation of the WTG
  • Detection of weaknesses
  • Evaluation of the operating data of the WTG
  • Recommendations within the scope of a possible lifetime extension

Further possibilities:

  • Drive train orientation examination, vibration analysis, video endoscopy, oil analysis

The assessment is carried out in compliance with the current guidelines of the BWE and the BWE expert advisory board, as well as the current state-of-the-art technology.
