Bladestar Renewables Ltd were tasked with completing Lightning Protection System (LPS) testing of x4 Gamesa G80 turbines.Due to our vast experience of these turbines we were able to complete the testing of all x12 blades via rope access in 2 days.


 Two rope access blade technicians were mobilised to site on the agreed date for commencement of the works.  The client supplied AT’s to us for isolating the turbine in safe preparation for our works.

For the task itself, we use a Low Resistance Ohmmeter to complete the tests.  The results are documented with photographs of the readings and submitted into a report.  These readings can then be sent to the manufacture to ensure that they are within the correct parameters. 

Our reports are uploaded onto our secure online server for client download within 72 hours of completion.  It is our company policy that all reports are uploaded swiftly for our customers. 

Completing LPS testing via rope access can be a very physically demanding task.  Our technicians expertise and efficiency help us complete this task safely and cost effectively.
