Featured image for Wind Turbine Inspection

Sphere Drones has an ever-growing range of drones. Take a look at them today.

Wind turbines are a key player in creating green energy but due to the nature of them needing to be high off the ground and having parts that move around the clock regular inspections are needed.

Drones are the perfect solution.

Inspecting wind turbines with drones

All wind turbines, no matter if on-shore or off-shore have one thing in common, height. For personal, this means climbing the structure, manually inspecting it, and risk injury from falling.

Using a drone equipped with a thermal and zoom camera allows for extra data to be captured, more people to look over the data to ensure nothing has been missed, and the ability to do all of this while keeping the wind turbine operational.

Benefits of using drones

  • Increased data capture rate - Drones can be deployed within minutes of being needed, allowing for faster and improved situational awareness for decision making.
  • Reduced downtime - Wind turbines can be left operational if needed, allowing a drone equipped with a zoom camera to fly up capture the required data and come back down.
  • Improved safety - Personal no longer need to climb up the wind turbine, removing the risk of falling.
