Wind Turbine Inspection

Drones have become a valuable tool for the inspection of wind turbines. These unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) offer several benefits over traditional inspection methods, making them an increasingly popular choice for wind turbine maintenance.

Using our BINDT Level 2 Thermographers and CAA approved drone pilots, Drone Site Surveys can also be part of the ongoing maintenance inspections. Thermography allows us to inspect the internal electrical equipment, and spot any thermal anomalies with the internal circuitry, and inspect the blades for early signs of delamination.

Benefits Of Using Drones to Inspect Turbines

One of the key benefits of using drones for wind turbine inspection is their ability to access difficult-to-reach areas. Wind turbines are often located in remote and inhospitable environments, making them challenging to inspect using conventional methods. Drones, on the other hand, can be easily deployed to these locations and can quickly and safely access areas that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to inspect.

Another benefit of using drones for these types of inspection is their ability to capture high-resolution images and video. This allows maintenance engineers to closely examine the condition of the turbine, identifying potential issues before they become more serious and costly to repair. Drones can also be equipped with thermal cameras, allowing operators to identify hotspots or other areas of concern.

In addition to their ability to access difficult-to-reach areas and capture high-resolution images, drones are much safer than traditional inspection methods. Climbing a turbine can be a dangerous task, particularly in adverse weather conditions. By using drones, wind turbine operators can avoid putting workers at risk, while still ensuring that the turbines are properly inspected and maintained.

Furthermore, using drones for inspection can also be more cost-effective than traditional methods. Because drones can be easily deployed and do not require workers to climb the turbine, they can save time and labour costs. In addition, drones can cover a large area quickly, allowing for more efficient inspections.

Overall, using drones for wind turbine inspection offers several benefits, including improved safety, cost-effectiveness, and the ability to access difficult-to-reach areas. As such, drones are becoming an increasingly popular choice for wind turbine maintenance and inspection.
