With the need to generate electricity using the power of wind and tides it is important to minimise both service and repair requirements by building in inherent reliability and safety.
This can be enhanced by the use of Shot Peening on components and structures, the use of Superfinishing to maximise performance of moving parts and reduce friction and coatings for protection against the elements.
As the technology increases surface engineering will play a larger part in the efficiency and reliability of these power generators.
