Boom is increasingly engaged to perform wind farm maintenance works in addition to our engineering and construction activities in the wind renewables sector. Over the past 12 months Boom has performed maintenance work across a number of wind farms.
The renewables team has been collaborating with our wind farm customers to provide engineering advice, perform critical maintenance and major component change outs on wind farms across Australia.
Successful execution of wind farm maintenance relies on a partnership approach, coupled with a strong focus on safety, engineering compliance, fit for purpose cranes and highly skilled project teams. Boom is a trusted supplier to many of the world’s leading wind turbine manufacturers.
Often under challenging weather conditions and at heights above 100 metres, our maintenance activities include removal and replacement of gear boxes, generators and blades. Boom also provides a range of travel towers and resources to support tower maintenance.
In the main pictured lift, Boom cranes and personnel removed a nacelle lid and completed a gear box exchange at a height of 110 metres, with a total under hook weight of 32.6 tonnes.
We continue to expand and diversify our service model to deliver scheduled wind farm maintenance programs.
