SMART & EFFICIENT

 

wind-turbine inspection using drones

 

IDS – INDUSTRIAL DRONE SERVICES has been active in the renewable energy sector in Greece since 2011.

In 2019 we developed our aerial inspection services and since 2020 we deliver specialized Wind Turbine Blade inspections with the use of drones. Our equipment and our proprietary & innovative flight platform enables us to deliver fast, accurate and detailed inspections.

Our services provide comprehensive, fast and cost-efficient solutions for the inspection and identification of anomalies using A.I. software and Blade expert professionals.

IDS supports businesses that own, maintain or manage Wind Parks with a simple, centralised and efficient way to utilise the innovative technologies of aerial inspection.

AERIAL INSPECTION

IMAGE ACQUISITION

Our proprietary flight platform, specifically developed for Wind Turbine Blade inspection, enables our pilots to complete the flight mission in less than 40 minutes while collecting high quality data around all four sides of the blades.

IDS drone pilots are specialized and licenced for aerial works and can carry out any inspection fast, safely and efficiently.

BLADE INSPECTION

IDS utilizes innovative platforms and A.I. software in order to detect cracks and damages fast and reliably while our blade experts analyse and categorize damages.

Our high definition cameras and our inspection cameras of 30x optical zoom guarantee that we detectand analyze even the smallest damages on every blade.

Our thermal inspection services analyse radiometric images for possible delamination, cracks and damages not visible to the naked eye.

TOWER INSPECTION

IDS has a developed a workflow for tower inspection achieving 100% coverage of the tower surface and analyzing all the images for possible damages such as corrosion, oil leaks, cracks or deplacement on flanges, etc.

Our blade experts analyze the images and provide damage measurements as well its location on the tower.

NACELLE INSPECTION

The nacelle has multiple areas that need to be inspected thoroughly.

In IDS we inspect for damages on the bolts, cracks on the surface, oil leakage, damage to meteorological mast and equipment, and missing or worn-out parts and covers.

The data collection is consistent and images are captured from every angle.

REPORTING

Our workflow allows for exact measurement of damages from the root of the blade and delivery of reports that include:

✔ Estimation of the location and the size of the damage on the blade
✔ Visual and/or Thermal data of the damage
✔ Damage analysis and proposed remedy actions
✔ Severity Assessment

DIGITAL SURFACE MODEL

Using photogrammetry software we construct 3d surface and terrain models.

THERMAL INSPECTION

Blade thermography is mainy used to determine the extent of known damages or to detect not visible damages such as delamination and inner structure abnormalities

REPORT

IDS offers actionable and detailed reports. Our reports can be adjusted to the client’s templates or configurations and include detailed damage analysis.
report wind

IDS offers a wide range of services including pre-constuction survey, construction  monitoring and thermal & visual blade inspection.

We can assist our clients in making site reconnaissance by providing high definition point cloudsorthomosaics and digital surface models prior to the wind turbine installation.

Prior to commissioning we conduct full blade inspection with thermal and visual cameras creating baseline data as reference for future inspections.

After commissioning we can run preventive and emergency inspections for possible damages and failures on the blade.
