Profile

GMA specializes in safely accessing, inspecting, and repairing on- and offshore wind turbines, with a focus on ensuring safe and efficient operations and minimizing downtime of the asset.

GMA performs inspection and maintenance services on on- and offshore utility-scale wind turbines and farms in order to help our clients optimize maintenance spending and ensure safe operations. With more than 35 years of experience in materials testing and quality assurance, we are a DIN EN ISO 17025 accredited service provider offering the following services:

Safe & cost-efficient access methods for rotor blades

  • Visual inspections (VT) & Ultrasonic testing (UT)
  • Replacement & repair of aerodynamic profiles (vortex generators, serrations, etc.)
  • Measurement & digitisation of individual rotor blade profiles for the production / development of add-on parts to optimise performance curves and noise reduction
  • Inspection & testing of lightning protection systems
  • Torque testing of rotor blade bolting
  • Recurring inspections

Composite Lab Testing Services

GMA helps you solve problems before they start with our destructive testing (DT), mechanical testing, chemical analysis and metallography services. Our lab testing solutions support wind turbines throughout development, process certification, production, and potential damage analysis stages.

3D Industrial Measurement & Automation Technology

With highly accurate geometry measurements and reverse engineering, we ensure your components for wind turbines and support your manufacturing processes.  For rapid ultrasonic inspection of large areas, GMA has developed the Spider SA scanner. This automated and ultra-mobile solution is used for non-destructive testing (NDT) of large areas and for quality assessment of metals, carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) and glass fibre reinforced polymers (GFRP).
