End of Warranty inspections of wind turbines have revealed high incidences of tower cable nonconformities. These issues are generally due to a known poor wind drip loop design that results in the abrasion of the tower cable insulation. These issues can lead to turbine faults, fire, and technician injuries; leading to turbine downtime and high repair costs.
Existing industry repair options only provide a temporary solution to the problem and delay a more costly cable replacement. Based on the known wind drip loop design shortcomings, the industry is researching a more cost-effective and permanent turbine life extension solution.
