Onshore Wind Turbines

Wind turbine Inspection Service Onshore

Inspection service on wind turbines onshore

Data acquisition – data analysis – automated reporting


The inspection service of wind turbines we provide is very diverse. There are different modular service levels which offers many advantages and benefits – combined with the possible active involvement of our customers.

Inspection

Aerial robots realize the external optical inspections of onshore wind turbines. More precisely, the components are rotor blades (from all 4 sides!) as well as the spinner. The nacelle and tower are optional.

The (autonomous) airborne data acquisition is carried out either by Aero Enterprise or as part of a partner program, by the customer himself. Aero Enterprise uses the self-developed helicopter-drone AERO-SensorCopter. The partner uses commercial DJI multicopter-drones.

With the start of the cooperation program, Aero Enterprise supports the partner with training in method and (flight) procedures in theory and practice. The comprehensive digital tool AERO-Software Package is used.

The collected data are processed by Aero Enterprise, get standardized and available for displaying in the free license AERO-View.

In the following step, the gathered data gets analysed under use of the license AERO-Lyse, depending on the service model. Anomalies can be quantified, qualified and classified according to the amount of damage. This is done by Aero Enterprise itself, by the customer or by a qualified external expert.

A digital technical report is generated automatically under use of the database AERO-Base by only one click. On request customized status reports can be carried out.
