SgurrEnergy has introduced unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to its existing inspection service offering after obtaining the Civil Aviation Authority‘s Permission for Aerial Work.
The UAVs are equipped with a variety of camera options to provide an accurate detailed assessment of an asset’s condition. Operations and maintenance inspections on wind turbine generators (WTGs) can be carried out up to four times faster than traditional rope access methods. The safety risk to inspection personnel is also significantly reduced. SgurrEnergy’s software can analyse the drone-captured inspection data and convert it into asset information for clients.
