Wind Turbine Inspections
All the reasons you need Dronos
Dronos increases efficiency, decreases down time, and simplifies the inspection process
The global focus on sustainability has created a growing demand for experts who know how to implement cost energy solutions for wind farm owners. With such a dramatic increase in Wind Turbine installations and focus on sustainability Worldwide, a need for cheaper and safer inspection methods has become necessary.
There are currently several methods for wind turbine inspections, some examples being rope descents, cranes, scaffolding service platforms, helicopters, and high powered telescopes. The problem with these methods rests in the dangers of climbing, heavy equipment, long shut down times, as well as being very time consuming, costly, and inefficient.
A safer and highly efficient solution to these issues is the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to complete the inspections. UAS inspections can be performed year round on land and sea, without the hassle of heavy equipment or machinery. It requires no inspector to climb the turbines and repel down; thus lowering the inspection time, as well as the down time of the turbine dramatically. Additional advantages of a UAS provide multiple avenues for inspections, including high-resolution images, full HD recordings and even thermal imaging you can keep for your records, all at a lower cost than traditional methods.
