WIND TURBINE DISMANTLING
As existing wind turbines approach their end of life, they must be reduced to small enough pieces that they can be transported to a disposal facility.
Wind-turbine blades are usually made from glass or carbon fibre in a polymer matrix. It is light, and tough material, and methods of demolition are limited.
Wind farms are often located in farmland, and it is essential that after cutting, the site is left free of debris.
Echidna excavator circular saws have proven to be an excellent tool for the cutting of wind-turbine blades on site.
Around Europe, wind farm installations where turbines are to be decommissioned, have benefited from the application knowledge and expertise of Echidna.
The Echidna hydraulic circular saw solution offers these advantages over other techniques:
- fast cutting; high productivity
- no debris left on site
- cutting can be done on freely resting blades at any angle with no need for positioning or clamping down
- even greater versatility can be achieved with the assistance of Echidna rotation heads, swivel heads and/or linear guide rails
- an excavator demolition saw takes little time to prepare; connect to an excavator via any quick hitch and start cutting
