From the first moment a wind turbine starts rotating, blades begin to wear. The process is usually slow, but days, months and years of contact with mild abrasives like sand, ice, salt, rain, snow and other elements will eventually take their toll.
A Wind Turbine Blade Management Program (BMP) is a critical component to the lifetime management of your blades. A BMP is a repository for important manufacturing information, temporal blade inspections and service history, ensuring the data you need is easily accessible and stored in the same place. With this data at your fingertips, you’ll be ready to navigate any warranty, service or insurance claims that may arise, and can easily track all correspondence and outcomes.
After a year of planning and preparation, the EdgeData℠ team returned to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) annual WINDPOWER Conference and Exhibition in Anaheim. Visitors and exhibitors from around the world attended the event.
This year’s WINDPOWER conference was focused on the future of wind energy. With major companies like GM, Amazon, Microsoft and Walmart investing in renewable wind energy, our industry is positioned for rapid growth through 2020 and beyond.
Enthusiasm was high and optimism even higher when the EdgeData team debuted BladeEdgeSM, our wind energy brand, at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) annual WINDPOWER Conference and Exhibition.
