Drone technology for blade inspection

Wind energy is one of the cleanest energy sources in the world. As long as there is enough wind power, wind energy generators can be built. Therefore, many countries in the world have wind energy generators, but the inspection of wind energy generator blades is a big problem. The blade  is tens of meters long, so it is very difficult to check manually. This drone blade inspection comes in handy.

The following are three drone technologies for wind turbine blade inspection for your reference

1.3DX HP

Swiss company Sulzer & Schmid Laboratories AG, a leader in drone technology for wind rotor blade inspection, announces the launch of its latest 3DX High Productivity (HP) solution designed for high volume inspection activities. Thanks to advanced automation and AI-enabled analytics, 3DX HP offers a streamlined one-stop process, making it one of the most effective rotor blade inspection solutions on the market today.

2. DJI Matrice 300 RTK

The DJI Matrice 300 RTK offer up to 55 minutes of flight time, a more advanced AI capabilities, all-directional sensing allowing detection of up to 40m and positioning and more, allowing a higher performance and unrivalled capabilities through combination of intelligence and technology.

Combined with the Zenmuse H20T, a hybrid camera with a 20MP Zoom Camera, 12MP Wide Camera, 1200m Laser Rangefinder and a 640x512 px Radiometric Thermal Camera, The Matrice 300 RTK with Zenmuse H20T combo is able to accomplish more missions with a touch of a button .
