Posted 7th July, 2020

Post Covid-19 Boom

The Windtex blade repair team are back in full swing!

Following an uncertain start to the year, our technicians are back on site and are working hard to catch up. We are currently working on 22 sites across the UK and Ireland for a range of companies.

Arrangements have been put in place to keep our technicians safe during the pandemic, these measures include screening, PPE, segregation and distancing.

Complex Repairs

Time consuming and weather dependant

Due to the fact that the pandemic has pushed many repair projects back a few months, most of our customers have decided to concentrate on getting the more serious repairs completed. This enables the turbines to keep supplying electricity to the grid without the blade damaged getting serious to the point that they may fail.

Category 4 & 5 damages take longer to remedy and work can only take place if certain weather parameters are met. As always, the wind speeds have to be low enough for safety reasons, but temperature and humidity have to be at the right levels too.

"The man­age­ment would like to say a big thank you to all Wind­tex per­son­nel who have helped the com­pa­ny remain oper­a­tional and safe through this dif­fi­cult period"

Key Building Block

Wind energy ‘key building block’ for recovery from Covid-19

A Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC)-led consortium has declared wind energy will play a key role in the road to recovering from the Covid-19 crisis.

The international body said the wind industry holds the potential to create jobs, generate zero carbon renewable power and drive green investment.

It urges governments to strengthen infrastructure, facilitate the transition to a renewable economy and provide financial support to renewable industries impacted by the ongoing pandemic.

Ben Backwell, CEO of GWEC, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented social and economic impact around the world and how we recover from the crisis depends on the actions that we all take over the coming months.

“We have the opportunity here to ‘re-build back better’, help kick-start sustainable economic recovery and build the energy infrastructure of the future.”
