WIND

Wind Energy NDT Services by CICNDT

At CICNDT, we lead with an expansive Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) repertoire of advanced wind turbine inspections methods, crucial for the rigorous demands of the wind energy sector. We ensure the structural integrity and optimal function of wind turbines, wielding a suite of advanced NDT methods, including cutting-edge Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Digital Image Correlation (DIC), and Laser Shearography.

Advanced Ultrasonic and Optical Inspection Solutions

Our suite of sophisticated NDT techniques, including Phased Array UT (PAUT), DIC, and Laser Shearography, is at the forefront of wind turbine technology inspection:

  • Ultrasonic Precision: Employing PAUT, we detect internal structural anomalies like cracks and voids with precision, even within the complex geometries of turbine blades.
  • DIC Analysis: DIC provides full-field strain and displacement measurements across blade surfaces. This optical method is crucial for identifying stress concentrations and early signs of material degradation without physical contact.
  • Laser Shearography: With Laser Shearography, we perform stress analysis and detect subsurface defects. This technique is especially effective for composite materials prevalent in turbine blades, offering a non-contact, definitive assessment of structural health.

Comprehensive Coverage with Advanced Diagnostics

  • High-Resolution Imaging: Combining high-frequency ultrasonic insights with the surface mapping capabilities of DIC and Laser Shearography, we reveal intricate details of turbine blade health.
  • Thorough Inspections: Our advanced technologies enable us to conduct inspections on complex shapes and materials, ensuring complete analysis from the blade root to the tip.
  • Efficient Process: Utilizing the latest software, we streamline inspections, offering rapid diagnostics and detailed defect characterization for informed maintenance and operations.

Unyielding Commitment to Sustainable Energy

Early and precise defect detection via PAUT, DIC, and Laser Shearography translates into prompt corrective actions, minimizing downtime and fortifying the reliability of wind energy production. CICNDT prides itself on providing swift, decisive inspections that uphold the competitive and trustworthy nature of wind as a clean energy source.
