3M has announced an agreement with Camp Six Labs to apply 3M products to wind turbine blades utilising the soon to be developed Camp Six robotic applicators.

Camp Six robotic applicators utilise small industrial robots mounted on drones to conduct routine wind turbine maintenance. During maintenance or upgrade work, FAA-certified pilots secure a safe flight perimeter and position the blades. After flying into position, multiple specialised robots will conduct repairs and improvements with 3M products.
