The increasing power output from today’s wind turbines, enabled by taller towers and longer rotor blades, put materials and systems to even stronger tests. To ensure turbine integrity and maximize uptime, Element provides materials expertise, testing, inspection, and calibration services supporting Wind Turbine OEMs and the Wind industry supply chain from early R&D and production to maintenance and failure investigations.

Harsh operational conditions accelerate the demands on turbine mechanical strength, aging properties, and corrosion resistance. We offer a wide range of services to make certain that these quality requirements are met throughout the wind turbines and across their life-cycle. Element provides comprehensive testing for onshore fundaments and anchors, offshore monopile and transition piece materials and coatings, tower materials and fasteners, transmissions and lubricants, as well as blades.
