Wind Turbine Internal Drone Inspections

Worker Safety: Working at heights of wind turbines can be risky and requires special precautions. The use of drones for internal inspection allows inspection without the need for ascent and direct exposure of workers to height-related hazards. Access to Hard-to-Reach Areas: Wind turbines often have parts that are difficult for humans to access, such as internal chambers and blades. A drone for internal inspection can easily maneuver through these tight spaces, facilitating the inspection process. Quick Inspection: Drones enable fast and efficient inspection of entire wind turbines. This means less time required for inspecting each turbine, improving overall work efficiency. Detailed Visual Information: Internal inspection drones provide high-quality real-time visual information. This allows inspectors to clearly see surfaces, joints, blades, and other turbine details. Early Problem Detection: Drones enable early detection of issues such as blade damage, material wear, corrosion, and other defects. Early detection helps prevent serious malfunctions and potential accidents. Reduced Downtime: Efficient drone inspection reduces the time needed for intervention and repairs. This allows for a quicker return of wind turbines to operation, minimizing disruptions in electricity production. Maintenance Planning: Information gathered during inspections assists in better planning for regular maintenance and servicing of wind turbines. This can extend their lifespan and reduce maintenance costs. Cost and Risk Reduction: Drone inspection reduces the need for large teams and expensive equipment for working at heights, thereby decreasing the risk of accidents at elevation. Accurate Documentation: Images and 3D maps created by the drone can be used to document the condition of wind turbines over time. This documentation aids in tracking changes and making informed maintenance decisions.
