The engineering giant Siemens and American producer of UAVs SkySpecs join forces for a special purpose. Together they will develop drones inspection of wind turbines.
Novsazdadenoto joint venture will develop autonomous flying robots capable of automatically capture and report on the status of installed wind turbines, announced GreenTech.bg.
The first demonstration of “fully autonomous inspections of wind turbines” has passed. Now the work is focused on creating a “system in which the touch of a button is triggered inspection process – faster, repeatable and more effective than existing methods.”
“Automated controls will significantly reduce operating costs and potentially increase the efficiency and lifespan of wind turbines,” say the project partners.tec
