Maintenance of Wind Turbines and Wind Farms
Maintenance is critical to wind turbine performance. Our maintenance services ensure that wind turbines operate at optimum efficiency so that the wind energy supplied to the grid meets and exceeds forecast levels. Our maintenance expertise also safeguards against unplanned downtime, unexpected component failure and unforeseen wear and tear.
Our expertise includes a wide range of technologies and turbine manufacturers, including Nordex, Senvion, Vestas, Enercon and Siemens and our team is trained to comply which each manufacturer's requirements.
We work with customers to plan and implement maintenance schedules that extend the service life of wind turbines and leverage the full potential of the technology.
Our maintenance services include:
Retrofit and Replacement of Wind Turbine Components
Replacing key components of wind turbines to enable the turbine to remain in service and in-situ is the best way to extend the service life of the wind energy asset and optimise performance. This is a technically-complex and demanding task, which requires both specialist skills and the correct equipment.
Our teams have the experience and knowledge of diverse wind turbine technologies and manufacturers, including Nordex, Senvion, Vestas, Enercon and Siemens. This enables us to carry out replacement and retrofit projects quickly and efficiently. Leveraging our national and international fleet of vehicles and lifting equipment, we can deploy the right resources for the job, often carrying out the replacement at short notice.
Thanks to our heavy and technical lifting capabilities, we can deliver even the most complex and demanding of major component replacements to upgrade the wind turbine or put it back into service as quickly as possible.
Our wind turbine retrofit and replacement services include:
Supervision for Wind Energy Projects
Whether on shore or off shore, wind farms are hazardous work environments so qualified supervision to ensure health and safety, quality assurance and compliance is vital.
We have an experienced team of highly-qualified supervision professionals who can provide mechanical and electrical supervision for a wide variety of wind turbine technology platforms models and manufacturers.
Our supervision services also include as site management capabilities and the provision of qualified personnel for supervision of heavy lifting activities.
We work with our customers to ensure all delivery partners fully understand the supervision requirements for the project and any challenges that may be involved, including safety and quality risk factors. Our approach is to utilise our years of experience in the wind energy sector to be proactive and supportive by problem solving, offering suggestions and maximising opportunities for continuous improvement.
Wind Turbine Decommissioning and Wind Farm Decommissioning
As wind energy becomes an increasingly important element of the world's energy capacity and sustainability strategy, decommissioning older, less efficient wind turbines to make way for newer, more effective technologies is an increasingly important part of what we do at AIS Wind Energy.
Working in remote and often hazardous environments, both on shore and off shore, our expects work closely with our customers and other delivery partners to plan and implement decommissioning projects. Our experience includes all wind turbine technologies and manufacturers, including Nordex, Senvion, Vestas, Enercon and Siemens.
Decommissioning projects may require work to be phased, in order for new turbines installations to be carried out as older assets are taken offline. They may include modifications to infrastructure to enable operational wind turbines to continue supplying the grid while others are decommissioned. They always demand a highly qualified and experienced team working to an agreed critical path and a detailed health and safety framework.
Whether it's a single wind turbine that needs to be decommissioned due to irreparable damage, a complete wind farm decommissioning project or a phased upgrade, we have the multi-disciplinary wind energy expertise required to help.
Our decommissioning services include:
Wind Turbine Installation and Wind Energy Infrastructure
Installation of new turbines and technologies capitalises on innovation in the wind energy sector, helping energy operators to grow their sustainable energy output and capacity.
Wind turbine installation is an important part of what we do at AIS Wind Energy and we are experienced in all turbine technologies and manufacturers, including Nordex, Senvion, Vestas, Enercon and Siemens.
We carry out installation projects at existing on shore and off shore wind farms to replace outdated turbines or those that are reaching the end of their service life. We also carry out wind turbine installations that extend the number of turbines at the wind farm, connecting the new assets to the existing infrastructure.
Our installation experience also includes wind turbine and infrastructure installation at new on shore and off shore wind farms, across Europe and around the world.
Our wind turbine installation services include:
QSHE Support and Advisory Services for Wind Energy Projects
Across the AIS Industrial Services Group, we are an organisation that puts health and safety at the centre of everything we do. That safety culture is particularly important in wind energy generation environments because of the hazardous nature of the assets, the locations and the activities involved.
We use our QSHE knowledge and experience to support and advise our customers on all aspects of quality, safety, wellbeing and environmental best practice. We can deliver principal contractor and CDM responsibility for safety at site, as well as co-ordinating all safety planning, risk assessment and QSHE management for the project. Our experienced HSE advisors are experts in wind turbine installation and help ensure a collaborative, safety-focused approach across the multi-disciplinary wind energy team, creating a positive health and safety culture for all delivery partners.
Our QSHE services include:
