The aim of the GWO Blade Repair training module is to enable the participants to support and care for themselves and others working in the wind industry by possessing the necessary knowledge, skills and ability for blade repair.
Upon successful completion of the GWO blade repair training course, the participants will be able to perform and document a wind turbine blade inspection, and execute repair work in accordance with a work instruction while maintaining the aerodynamic profile and structural integrity in glass fiber reinforced composite parts of a wind turbine within the following dimensions:
– Laminate repairs including leading edge and trailing edge repairs affecting a
maximum amount of 5 layers and a maximum repair area size of 500 cm²;
– Core material replacement up to 200 cm²;
– Surface repair to paint and gelcoat.
The GWO Blade Repair training course is intended as an entry level course and the
participants will not therefore be expected to perform repairs in major structural
elements of blades like spars, spar caps and carbon fiber.
