It is common knowledge that wind turbine rotor blades can suffer damage from variable weather conditions. When blades become damaged or faulty the total productivity of your turbine may be considerably reduced.
APT Aerial Surveys can work closely with your engineering and maintenance teams to provide high-quality dynamic real-time video and photographic images for each of your wind turbines reducing potential failures which result in down-time and associated costs.
Our UAV drones can analyse the blades and structure of each wind turbine asset in seconds up to 120metres high, rapidly moving to multiple locations throughout the wind farm allowing you to survey and analyse the resulting images much quicker than traditional manual inspection methods.
All we require is for you to provide an engineer during throughout the UAV aerial inspection; they can direct our drone pilot to fly to the required position. The engineer can look at the images coming back in real time so he can quickly identify any potential problems and request a more detailed survey of that particular region.
The resulting images and/or video will be recorded of the drone aerial survey. All subsequent findings will be documented within our report and forwarded within 24 hours.
