Currently, it is essential to robotize maintenance activities to reduce accidents, increase productivity and improve results. The potential is huge. We used Aerones’ technology in LPS inspection and drainage hole cleaning at the Red Dirt and Thunder Ranch Wind Plants, in Oklahoma (US). Aerones was tested on 14 units at Red Dirt and 17 turbines at Thunder Ranch. It was an operational and economic success.

The robotic LPS services were delivered in a high quality. The results were accepted by the insurance company to complete the obligation. Aerones demonstrated professional communication and capability to perform in challenging conditions. It has been a pleasure working with Aerones.

Aerones performed lightning conductivity test for 100 wind turbines in preperation for End of Warranty claims at our wind farm in Seymour, Texas. The robotic services have been high quality and expeditious with an average of 3 WTGs tested per day.

In addition to the conductivity measurement, the system is also suitable for repair work as well as coatings on the leading edge of the blade, visual inspections of the blade surface and interior or for cleaning work on the turbine. We see a lot of potential in this technology. In the future, we could save both time and money.
