Drone Inspections

Windfarm operators understand the impact that a damaged blade can have on the performance of the turbine; even minor damage can result in a loss of efficiency and associated production revenue. Identification of damage and its assessment of severity and impact are key in planning a repair campaign and maintenance strategy.

Using our expert knowledge and latest drone technology combined with the very best in defect assessment from our industry leading partners, we offer our Clients a full turn key package for blade inspections, both onshore and offshore.

 

From initiation of the campaign our Clients will be assured by our professional and knowledgeable approach. Our project team will deploy a Drone Team to site where with a commercial drone we undertake a complete mapping of the turbine blades from tip to root using a high specification camera to capture thousands of high quality pictures. During this process we can also conduct additional surveys of the turbine components including tower and nacelle as required by the Client. The captured data is then immediately sent to our processing partner in Denmark where using advanced AI a complete analysis of the data is conducted. A defect assessment report is then produced which provides the Client with a full categorisation of all defects along with a severity calculation of each defect and recommended actions.

 

Whilst blade inspections form the core of our business we can also offer the following services:

  • 3D Mapping of land and buildings
  • Thermal Imaging surveys
  • Publicity and marketing film recording and production
  • Damage Assessment of assets and buildings
