Conquer the game of energy production and diminish any uncertainties with our Drone Powered Solutions.
Automate wind turbine inspection with our AI powered drone solutions.
Increase efficiency, ensure safety, reduce operation cost and increase revenue
Wind turbine and blade inspection can be challenging, especially when internal structural issues are involved, which might not be visible from the outside. Manual inspections alone may not easily identify these technical faults, but drone-powered solutions prove invaluable in addressing such challenges. Our Drones are equipped with highly advanced sensors like thermal, infrared sensors specially designed and calibrated for wind Turbine and Blade inspection that gathers information (data) rapidly and can see up to 15cm deep into wind turbines. Our team uses machine learning and advanced processing software to find any internal or external structural issues (issues as small as 5mm) and help the wind farms to can structural integrity, extend lifespan of turbines and take right action at the right time.
Our pilots undergo rigorous training, strictly adhere to safety standards during aerial inspections of wind turbines and blades, and we proudly maintain a flawless safety record with zero accident record throughout any survey or inspection mission. So far we have already covered Inspection of 200+ Turbines and helped wind farms to maximize efficiency and reduce downtime.
Methods of wind turbine blade inspections
Wind turbine blade inspection methods encompass surface and sub-surface techniques. Surface inspections employ visual tools, including cameras and drones, to detect issues like cracks, erosion, and lightning or bird strikes. Early detection allows for efficient corrective maintenance. Sub-surface inspections utilize non-destructive methods such as thermal imaging, ultrasound, and electromagnetic waves to identify structural flaws within the blades’ internal structure, including damaged shear webs and bonding erosion. However, internal inspections involving technicians physically climbing into the blades are limited due to height, safety, and efficiency constraints, leaving a significant portion uninspected, particularly in offshore wind farms.
With our cutting-edge Equinox’s Drones technology, we excel in effectively inspecting a wide range of defects in wind turbine blades. Our superior quality equipment enables us to meticulously identify and address the following issues:
- Leading edge erosion
- Trailing edge splits
- Suction Side defects
- Surface cracks
- Bird strikes
- Bonding Erosion
- Internal structural defects
