Wind Turbine Blade Damage

Damaged Wind Turbine

Wind turbine rotor blades can suffer damage as they are subjected to extremely variable weather conditions. When blades become damaged, dirty or faulty the total productivity of your turbine may be considerably reduced.

We can work closely with your engineering and maintenance teams to provide high-quality real-time imagery of each of your turbine assets, reducing down-time and associated costs.

Our UAV can analyse the blades and structure of each wind turbine asset in seconds, moving to multiple locations in a wind farm with minimal time delay, allowing you to survey and analyse HD imagery much quicker than traditional telephotography or manual inspection methods.

During an inspection, your engineer will direct the AtmosCam UAV pilot to fly to the required position for analysis. A real-time video feed will be displayed on the ground so that the engineer can quickly identify any potential problems and demand a more in-depth survey of that particular region.

HD video will be recorded of the survey, with findings documented in a comprehensive report and complimentary DVD with files in a format of your choice up to 1080p.

Benefits of using an AtmosCam UAV for Wind Turbine Blade Inspections

  • A safer working environment
    Personnel can remain on the ground instead of working at height, in all weathers.
  • Reduced downtime
    An AtmosCam UAV can reach work height (up to 120m) in less than a minute and begin producing results immediately.
  • Higher quality imagery from any vantage point
    Our highly-skilled UAV operators can fly within 2 metres of a wind turbine, producing unsurpassed image quality in great detail.
  • Making the inaccessible accessible
    The UAV can be directed to the blade tips to perform a survey that would traditionally be dangerous and time-consuming in a matter of minutes.
  • Dynamic Surveying
    Using real-time imagery streamed to the ground, your engineer can direct the survey to investigate any potential issues while the UAV is in the air allowing focused results.
