Over the last few weeks, I have written about the importance of preventive maintenance and about one of the most common problems with wind turbine blades, leading edge erosion. Today I will look at another issue that causes problems with blades – lightning strikes.
Material erosion as a phenomenon is a part of fluid dynamics and it happens everywhere in nature where there are fluids in motion, from riverbanks to engines, pipes, cars, and airplanes, and of course, wind turbine blades.
Over the years Bladefence has been involved in many diverse types of blade maintenance projects across Europe and North America.
