The standard inspection method for quality assurance of the exterior surfaces of wind turbines is to employ people trained as rope access or industrial climbers. But this is not the only way. The article on page 7 outlines how drones can undertake visual inspection of turbines, and then supporting software and archiving can be used to analyse the data.
