By the beginning of 2015,there were nearly 270,000 wind turbines operating globally .The more than 800,000 blades spinning on these turbines are battered by the elements over time and gradually wear out .Deterioration can cause reduced energy production and catastrophic and costly blade collapse if left unnoticed .A new approach using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs),is rapidly becoming the inspection tool of the future.
Types of inspections include
1 Turbine blade Leading edge Erosion Inspections
2 Identification of Blade defects
3 Blade Wrinkling and dry Glass
4 Turbine Blade lightning Receptor Inspection
5 Tower and Nacelle inspections
