Wind Turbine Maintenance

While a certain amount of attention should be put on installation, continuous monitoring and wind turbine maintenance is no more required than it would be for most household appliances. There is a small amount of scheduled maintenance to be followed, including lubricating bearings with grease, and occasional blade and tower inspection, and checking on the control unit for errors on a regular basis.
The hydraulic design of the Orenda wind turbine towers allows all nacelle maintenance to be carried out on the ground, without any special equipment or working at heights. An annual inspection and Preventative Maintenance (PM) procedure can be carried out in less than one day by a field technician. The owner can check the control unit in just a few seconds visually, and a dealer can view the system status on-line using the Orenda Iris™ in just a few minutes.
Additionally, the integrated digital control system for Orenda wind turbines, in combination with Iris™ allows for pro-active monitoring of turbine conditions, possible fault situations, and detailed logging of turbine production. This provides technicians responding to a call for wind turbine maintenance with a clear picture of the work that needs to be done, as well as the equipment and parts that may be needed for the service, before they even depart to the turbine’s location.
In short, all Orenda wind turbine features make the system easier to install and maintain, which translates to best-in-class financial returns and greater risk management.
