Service and Maintenance

Wind turbine service and inspections

Wind turbine down time is a costly business. To help reduce the risk of shut downs, Granada Cranes have developed a unique combination of offshore engineering expertise and custom-designed software. This dual strategy provides a rigorous, on-going range of preventative and corrective maintenance services that are setting new standards of efficiency.

All of our materials and components are sourced only from world-class suppliers, are fully certified for offshore use and conform to all relevant standards.

DATAHUB Remote Monitoring of Wind Turbines

Granada offshore engineers, who are completely familiar with foundation equipment from all OEMs, receive daily updates from our DATAHUB software, which goes further than any other system to streamline complex, constantly-changing data. These daily updates, and other DATAHUB functions, help them to achieve a level if lifting equipment management that was previously unattainable – a breakthrough in minimising offshore risk and keeping the turbines turning.

Working to a clearly defined strategy, our offshore teams operate as extensions to our clients’ own teams, implementing an extremely thorough programme of activity with total professionalism.
