Wind Turbine and Blade Inspection

Wind Turbine and Blade Inspection

UAV inspection of wind turbines can significantly reduce downtime by regularly assessing plant condition and helping to spot damage before it causes equipment failure.

Our team of highly qualified inspectors is able to conduct UAV inspections at a fraction of the cost of a traditional manual inspection, making regular asset condition monitoring much more economical.

UAV inspection can also be conducted more quickly than the manual alternative, reducing equipment downtime while significantly improving safety by eliminating the need for personnel to work at height.

Key Benefits


Visual Surveys

UAVs equipped with high-resolution cameras can capture images of even the smallest defects

Thermal Surveys

UAVs equipped with the latest thermal cameras can assess the condition of a wide range of equipment, including wind turbine blades, electricity distribution plant, and other machinery

Thickness Testing

Our UAV-mounted thickness testing equipment is able to ignore coatings up to 20mm thick

Confined Space Inspections

Large confined spaces such as storage vessels and furnaces can be safely inspected using the latest uav technology.

Gas Leak Detection

We deploy UAVs fitted with optical gas imaging cameras to detect gas leaks, aiding compliance with environmental regulations and increasing profitability

LIDAR Surveys

In certain applications LIDAR can provide useful supplemental data to an optical or thermal survey, generating highly precise models of surfaces or terrain.


There are plenty of benefits to drone surveying, here's just a few


Many UAV surveys can be safely conducted on live equipment, reducing lost revenue during the inspection window

Even where isolation is necessary, preparation and inspection times are significantly shorter than traditional inspection methods


Significantly reduces the need for personnel working at height

All inspections are conducted with the latest UAVs, incorporating rotor redundancy and collision avoidance features to ensure the safety of equipment and personnel


State of the art cameras and sensors produce high resolution images, enabling accurate condition monitoring and remedial work planning


Reduced cost and inspection times vs. traditional methods allows more frequent inspections

Repeat readings at regular intervals allows precise tracking of equipment condition and deterioration over its lifespan


Combination of optical and thermal analysis is able to identify a wide range of potential blade issues

Cloud-based data storage and interrogation tools allow clients to interpret data from anywhere in the world


Sophisticated software enables comprehensive reporting, highlighting any defects on precisely georeferenced images

Intelligent inspection software enables easy repetition, to monitor the rate of equipment degradation

All defects can be measured accurately using inspection software, enabling assessment of fault severity and planning of remedial work


We have a deeply experienced team, a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment, and a broad range of UAV inspection services to deal with any situation. We work closely with all our clients to come up with the ideal inspection package for their requirements and budget.
