SkySpecs uses drones to successfully inspect over 30,000 wind turbine blades

SkySpecs has announced it has officially inspected 33,000 wind turbine blades using drones with its fully automated drone solution.

The company works around the globe and its newly-released software, Horizon, enables customers to analyse inspection data manage its fleet maintenance.

SkySpecs CTO, Tom Brady, said: “Because our inspection process is extremely measurable and repeatable, SkySpecs is able to observe the same damages and draw correlations from year to year.”

He added: “We’re able to tell you whether damage has changed in size or if severity has gotten worse, and whether repair has become more urgent. We’re starting to see owners use this data to develop more predictive repair strategies.”

Skyspecs is operational in six countries across six continents and has inspected over 225 wind farms over the past 18 months.
