Blades Europe Forum, 18 - 19 February 2020

Birgit Junker

Blade Specialist

Birgit started in the wind industry in 2002 working at blade facilities. Relatively soon after she moved into field failures and other site issues regarding blades. For 11 years Birgit has been mostly working with serious incident investigation on wind turbine blades and field failures. There have also been investigations into transport issues with blades.

With her extensive international experience she has been to sites and blade facilities on four continents gathering a knowledge base on blades in different climates. After moving to the customer side, her main focus has been how to minimise turbine downtime and maximise power output while giving the blades the care and attention they need.

This has been done via Q&A sessions, root cause investigations and extensive research into what inspection methods to use and when.
