Blade Inspections

Minimize Downtime and Maximize Savings with Blade Inspections

Drone-Based Inspections

Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is the cutting-edge way to inspect wind turbines, allowing for numerous daily inspections and increased technician safety.

Advantages of using UAVs as inspection drones:

  • Year-round, on and offshore inspections
  • Increased safety of inspection staff
  • Saves money by decreasing downtime
  • Does a full day’s inspection work in one hour!
  • Crisp images/videos from optimal perspectives
  • Can be equipped with infrared/thermal sensors
  • Maneuverable and easy to control
  • Fly autonomously along predefined flight routes
  • Real-time survey investigation
  • Streamed to the engineer on the ground
  • Probe potential issues while still in the air
