We help our clients improve performance of their wind turbines through reduced downtime required for inspections and improved quality of information for preventative maintenance. We employ an efficient workflow to capture high quality visual and thermal data from each turbine and all blade sets. Our detailed tower and blade inspections typically take less than 2 hours from the time the blades are stopped and locked, until the tower can be started again. We carefully analyze all data for signs of delamination, cracks or erosion, splits in the trailing edge, lightning strike, fluid leak, corrosion and a long list of other potential issues. Our analysis and easy to use reports flag critical issues that require urgent attention and other issues that will require future planned preventative maintenance. Our reporting system provides efficient navigation to the precise location on the structure and can monitor components or issues over time to track progression.
Where infrastructure and assets are often spread over great distances, in locations that may be difficult to reach and where human safety is a concern during a live inspection or at high elevation we help simplify access to critical information. We help our clients reduce cost and improve performance of their network, their maintenance programs and their sub-contractors through independent inspection with improved information quality and easy to use reporting. We perform detailed inspections of tower structures, power cables and sub-stations utilizing industrial drones suitable for the electromagnetic environment and a variety of sensors including high resolution imaging and radiometric thermal imaging. Our analysis and easy to use reports are geo-referenced for easy navigation, they flag critical issues that require urgent attention and other issues that will require future planned preventative maintenance. We work closely with our clients to establish inspection criteria, analysis and reporting guidelines, and report formats that help guide maintenance planning and budgeting.
