Award Winning Aerial Drone Survey Services for Wind Farms, Wind Turbines and Offshore Wind Farms across Scotland and the North of England.
The wind energy sector is a huge part of the future of renewable energy in the UK and is continuing to grow at a rapid rate.
Yet while the wind energy sector continues to grow with new wind farms across Scotland and England, the existing ‘network’ of wind turbines need to be maintained. And to ensure that these wind turbines are running reliably, efficiently and consistently, frequent visual maintenance and inspection is required.
This requirement to keep wind turbines running at 100% maximum efficiency is of vital importance to the energy sector and has, until recently been a costly exercise.
The traditional method of close up inspection of wind turbine blades (for example) would usually require the turbine to be taken off line for a prolonged period of time while experienced high rope access specialists would then advance to key points of interest on the wind turbine in order to study, inspect and survey each turbine rotor blade. This entire process would take significant time and cost while putting employees in harms way by working at height.
Aerial Drone Surveys are the future
With the use of commercial grade aerial drone surveys, wind turbine inspection can now be done in a fraction of the time compared to conventional methods and with significant cost savings.
With a fleet of advanced aerial drones that feature some of the most advanced 4K high definition video camera technology, we are able to provide a comprehensive inspection and survey service for businesses in the wind energy sector. From our head office in Glasgow, we can cover Scotland and the North of England. Our advanced aerial drones can inspect multiple turbines in one flight plan and can cover an entire wind farm plot in one day (something that can take numerous days with conventional methods.)
With our UAV drones, we can capture 4K high definition video and imaging for each wind turbine inspection from angles and distances that are quite literally impossible for current survey methods. Our inspections can put put together in digital reports and stored for future comparisons and easy referencing. Another example of the supreme benefits of using aerial drones for inspecting wind turbines across the UK.
