New research project launched to develop automated verification of offshore wind turbine inspection results

perceptual robotics remote drone monitoringDNV has launched a new collaborative research project to develop an automated data processing procedure for verification of detected wind turbine blade defects. The research project, which is being conducted in partnership with the University of Bristol and Perceptual Robotics, will investigate the automated verification, validation and processing of inspection data, collected by autonomous drones, to improve inspection quality and performance.

Fit-for-55 Package: Higher targets alone will not make for more wind energy

With its ‘Fit-for-55 Package’ the European Union wants to create the right framework for an emission reduction of 55% by 2030 and set the course for carbon neutrality by 2050. The package will include a higher renewable energy target, but targets alone won’t deliver the wind volume Europe needs. WindEurope outlines the wind industry’s key policy priorities for the ‘Fit-for-55 Package’.
