Natural Power secures turbine inspection contract from DONG Energy

CTBR Staff Writer Published 28 August 2017

Natural Power has secured a contract from DONG Energy to provide turbine blade inspection services for wind facilities in the UK, Denmark and Germany.

Under the contract, the inspection services, which include maintenance and repair schedules, will be provided to 260 wind turbines.

Previously, Natural Power had delivered turbine blade inspections services at London Array, Westermost Rough and Walney wind farms. Currently the firm will mobilize at Lincs wind farm.

Natural Power, which also has experience in OEM turbine platforms, uses a semi-automated data capture solution to generate high-resolution imaging and processing software, which will analyze the durability of new and ageing turbine blades, both on and off-shore.

Natural Power inspections global head Craig Gordon said: “As an independent provider, we can offer a cost effective and flexible service when it comes to turbine inspections. We are selected for our ability to deliver best practice and operational efficiency.”

DONG Energy UK field manager in inspection management Chris Rowland said: “Natural Power has demonstrated clear understanding and commitment to the growing needs of inspection and maintenance in offshore wind and is proactively working to build on a strong track record of quality and efficiency.”

In May last year, NTR appointed Natural Power for asset management of Teevurcher Wind Farm located in Co. Meath in the Republic of Ireland. 

At the time of contract annoucement, the Teevurcher Wind Farm site was under construction with Natural Power providing project management, Owner’s Engineer, Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW) and hydrological monitoring services.
