Due to the need for alternative energy sources, the use of wind energy structures has skyrocketed in recent years. A large number of structures have been built and installed across the United States to meet this demand and are key components in the quest for effective and green electricity generation.
Including both steel poles and self-support style towers, small wind energy structures are very susceptible to fatigue-induced issues related to both base welded connections and anchor bolts.
Wind turbine blades are difficult to inspect but require maintenance to prolong their lifespan. RES is able to provide this service with our UAS inspections, by using our radiometric thermal camera to inspect any scarring or threading on the blades.
As with all elevated structures, routine maintenance and inspection is crucial to the safe operation longevity of these structures. Call RES today and let’s discuss how we can assist you in protecting your structures.
