Tractebel Ice Fall Risk Assessment Digital Application
Wind turbines that are erected close to roads or agricultural infrastructure pose a risk for people passing by due to the ice fragments that form on the blades and eventually pushed by meteorological conditions they fall.
At Tractebel our innovative experts have developed the first cloud-based web application for ice fall risk assessment for wind projects.
Thanks to this methodology, our customers can now access real time information that maps out the risk probability, the area of exposure and the potential damage ice fall can cause based on meteorological conditions.
This unique digital application assists project developers, wind turbine operators and authorities by providing specific data to validate the location of installation of a wind turbine as well as evaluating the effectiveness of risk prevention measures.
All parameters can be modified by the user. Sensitivity analysis + optimal configuration to reduce the risk(s).
Calculation of risk as product of probability, exposure and damage.
