Rope Partner has been serving the wind-power industry since 2001 and has experience in at-height maintenance, inspection, and performance enhancing aftermarket services that require specialized access approaches. The company’s extensive experience has helped clients across the globe with blade repair and improvements, tower mechanical and inspection scopes, reducing down time and maximizing output.

“Since partnering with Gladiators in 2019, our clients have capitalized on our offering of internal and external tower cleanings, including blades and nacelles with much success,” said Eric Stanfield, CEO of Rope Partner. “Acquiring Gladiators furthers our ability to better amortize technician mobilizations and reduce standby by offering the ability to complete more work scopes in a single site visit.

We are very focused on being the ‘Tip of the Spear,’ bringing new products and services to our customers and this patented solution is yet another value add that we will offer our customers.”

The acquisition of Gladiators, the leader in wind-turbine power-washing, will help keep cleaning projects on schedule no matter how dirty the wind turbine.

This patented cleaning tool uses citrus-based cleaners and microbes to eliminate hydrocarbons, along with extensive wastewater removal measures.
