Lightning season

Lightning season is still over central Europe. We recommend that during lightning season, blades should be followed closer.

First check can be done by a simple inspection by binoculars when technicians are visiting turbines for other matters and listening for whistling sounds while blades are still spinning. Remember to add a registrations on the specific blade as an observation in the AtSite DataBase for traceability. If there is a reasonable chance of lightning strikes has occurred, blades should be inspected thoroughly before winter.
