QA & QC Support

Bladeworks primary activity is Quality Control. Ensuring structural integrity as per specification and operational readiness is the main focus of Bladeworks. Regardless of the original assignment – management support, project support, production support or engineering support – the focus often shifts to improving quality protocols and discipline at several levels in the manufacturing organisation.
Recommendations to achieve consistent quality improvements, and the subsequent implementation of these process improvements are examples of how the expert knowledge of Bladeworks can contribute to your project or production facility.

Training, implementing ownership and inspiring engagement are only a few of the challenges in the existing quality ecosystems. Theoretical and practical knowledge of production processes, blade transportation, blade storage and installation enable Bladeworks to anticipate on frequently occurring issues as well as taking note of unique situations.

Inspections & Audits

Inspections & Audits

Bladeworks has an extensive track record of performed inspections and audits. These include in-line production inspections at OEM, factory acceptance tests (FAT), audit related inspections, end of warranty inspections (EoW), O&M blade inspections, retrofit inspections, remediation quality inspections and forensic blade inspections (RCA). Combining this experience with an understanding of both the production processes and the human factors involved in manufacturing and construction, Bladeworks can execute thorough and efficient inspections.

Extensive experience guides Bladeworks to ask the right questions allows for factual quality review and on-sight safety assurance of acquired or produced wind turbine blades. All inspection activities involve detailed documentation accompanied with operational recommendations according to the wishes of the client.
