Aero Enterprise offers a cooperation model for the efficient inspection of wind turbines for wind energy consultants and service companies throughout Europe. With the new concept we support our customer and partners in the progressive requirements for digitization. Read More
Aero Enterprise at the ‘Offshoretage‘ in Warnemünde
Symposium of the international offshore wind energy industry in Rostock
On March 2nd Robert Hörmann presented the possibilities and limits of an airborne inspection with drones.
As part of our planned first offshore test flight series, Robert Hörmann spoke on the subject of “Technical Challenges and Developments” at the ‘Offshoretage’ 2018 in Warnemünde/Germany on March 2nd. Among other things, he showed the possibilities and limitations of an airborne inspection with drones.
This year’s ‘Offshoretage’ from 1st to 2nd March in the Yachthafenresidenz Hohe Düne offered insights into the offshore market, its framework conditions as well as the state of the art and innovations.
We are grateful for the invitation and want to thank for the exciting exchange with speakers and participants!

Legal provisions, opportunities and challenges
Inspection with unmanned systems at wind turbines
Robert Hörmann spoke on July 12 from 17 clock in Zorneding / Munich on the legal provisions, opportunities, but also challenges in the inspection of unmanned systems at wind turbines.
We thank you for your interest and discussions with colleagues and experts!
VDI conference in Frankfurt
Overview in the technical and legal framework
During VDI conference on 4 and 5 July in Frankfurt, Experts where informed about the status quo of the industrial use of civilian drones. The conference gave a comprehensive overview of the technical and legal framework for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles. Aero Enterprise showed which tasks UAV’s already successfully take over in energy-technical systems.
At 5.30 pm on July 5, Robert Hörmann spoke about “Quality assurance from the air using the example of wind turbines”.
Industry Day in Düsseldorf
Workshop about the use of drones on wind turbines
On the 28th and 29th of June, exciting questions from, among others, research, maintenance, production, law and standardization as well as a special forum on the subject of “municipalities and wind energy” awaited the visitors of the Industry Day NRW 2017 in Düsseldorf.
Robert Hörmann presented and discussed in a workshop on 28 June at 14.30 clock on “The use of drones on wind turbines”.
Thank you for visiting us at the CeBit Hannover
Great feedback and discussions
Thanks also to Gesine Meißner, Member of the European Parliament and Jan Syré, Chairman of BUVUS, who visited our booth at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover.
VGB Conference “Maintenance on Power Plants”
The energy transition in Germany has dramatic effects on conventional power plant
The energy transition in Germany has dramatic effects on conventional power plants as a result of the massive expansion of renewable energies.
Not only lower full load hours, but also frequent approaches and descents and steep load ramps are new requirements for existing power plants. This is accompanied by an increased lifetime consumption of the components.
At the same time as the revenues that can be achieved on the market are falling steeply, the maintenance budgets are becoming increasingly scarce. Sometimes not even a substance-sustaining maintenance is possible.
The VGB conference in Hamburg should take this unfortunate trend into account and show how the operators react to these challenges.
In two podium discussions – with experts from the energy industry – the topic is deepened.
Aero Enterprise will also attend the conference on March 2nd. At 3.50 pm our CEO Robert Hörmann will give a talk on “Airborne Quality Assurance – Inspection of Rotor Blades with Air Robot”.
We look forward to a stimulating discussion afterwards!
Here you will find the program booklet for the event.
New website of our subsidiary GIZMOtec GmbH online
Redundancy board with the name “AutoPilot Manager Kit”
Just in time for Christmas our new website of our subsidiary GIZMOtec GmbH went online.
As a sales arm and solution provider around unmanned systems is offered with a first major product, a redundancy board with the name “AutoPilot Manager Kit”.
As a link for the operation of two independently running (different) autopilot on board an autonomous robot (on the air, in the water or on land), a safety switch is installed, which in case of failure of one of the two autopilots (eg by power failure, …) on the second autopilot toggles.
The AP Manager thus provides one of the foundations for the redundancy required by many aviation authorities in Europe for the operation and deployment of commercially used, unmanned systems, in particular for multi-copters.
