Blade Engineering

RSK has been supporting clients in the renewable energy sector for more than 20 years and knows that wind power is an integral part of the strategy that will help to achieve a net-zero emissions and carbon-free future.

Asset inspection and preventive maintenance are critical to maximising energy output and ensuring a return on investment for any wind turbine, regardless of the manufacturer. CAN Renewables, an RSK company built around its clients’ needs, combines expertise in renewable energy and practical technical solutions to deliver global, multibrand blade engineering services.

CAN Renewables draws on RSK’s and CAN’s decades of experience in supporting clients’ energy generation requirements, including on- and offshore wind energy generation. In an environment we understand, our goal is to work safely to protect rotor blades, enhance performance and prolong asset life.
