SGS End of Warranty Inspection Services

(PresseBox) ( Geneva, )
The long list of SGS wind energy inspection services implemented in the Borusan project included tower and machinery inspection, rotor blade inspection via rope access to include the measurement of the lightning protection system, vibration measurement of the drive train, endoscopic inspection of the main gearbox and analysis of the gearbox oil and focused on the structural integrity and safe operation of each turbine. Specific content of SGS inspection services followed the guidelines established by the expert committee of BWE, the German Wind Energy Association.

SGS skilled professionals supported Borusan officials by conducting full scope in-service inspections, examining wind turbine components, identifying deficiencies and failures of critical components and preparing detailed reports of evidence required to take advantage of valid warranties.

In the Borusan project, wind turbine reliability was of utmost importance as even minor failures could cause costly interruption or total suspension of services or production resulting in substantial financial losses.

Therefore, it was paramount that SGS end of warranty inspection ensures that turbines perform effectively for as long as possible. In order to guarantee the highest quality and reliability of turbine components and performance, Borusan chose to rely on SGS independent inspection, verification, testing and certification skills.

Operating and maintaining wind farms requires huge financial commitment. Warranty inspection services offer some relief by detecting problems on critical components within warranty time restraints in order to file claims and save money. The Bandirma Wind Energy Power Plant in Turkey profited from SGS end of warranty inspections by avoiding costly repair or replacement of parts due to warranty expiration, substantially reducing risk of revenue lost by interruption or suspension of service or production and increasing asset value.

SGS was particularly happy to extend an expert helping-hand to this distinguished project implementing renewable energy technology and strategy to impact the world.
