Pacific Hydro engaged AWS after identifying a need for an inspection program at their Cape Nelson and Cape Bridgewater wind farms in Victoria. The Australian Wind Services inspection team conducted comprehensive on-site full wind turbine inspections, including internal and external blades reviews.

Each inspection was supported with a detailed report as well as a completion report, outlining all the findings; identified problems and cost-effective solutions. This service is unique in Australia and only offered by Australian Wind Services.

AWS technicians called upon their turbine manufacturing experience to develop, design and manufacture a mould tip solution for a damaged turbine. Australian Wind Services’ streamlined inspections process, and problem solving capabilities, ensured the solution was cost effective and implemented promptly to minimise down time on-site.

Australian Wind Services have gone on to supply Pacific Hydro with a long-­‐term staffing solution providing on-site technicians to complete a program of regular, scheduled servicing, blade repairs and major component replacements at Pacific Hydro three other Victorian locations, at Yambuk, Challicum and Codrington.

Services provided:

  • Full turbine inspections
  • External and internal blade reviews
  • Repair procedure reporting
  • Blade repairs
  • Major component replacements
  • Scheduled servicing at 6­-month intervals
