Virtual Reality Tool for Controlled Bolt Tightening in Wind Energy Industry

The importance of bolt tightening in wind turbine maintenance

The wind energy industry has seen significant growth in recent decades. Wind power is a renewable and clean source of energy that has gained popularity due to its potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. As wind turbines continue to get taller and more complex, the maintenance and repair of these turbines becomes more challenging.

One critical maintenance task in wind energy is bolt tightening. Proper bolt tightening ensures the safety and stability of wind turbines, but it can be difficult to achieve in the field. A new virtual reality tool has been developed to address this issue.
