Esvagt, Siemens Gamesa and Ørsted are developing a drone-based solution for the delivery of spare parts and tools from vessel to offshore wind turbine. The project bearing the working title Operative package deliveries by drones will examine the potential in meeting offshore WTG technicians’ needs in an easier way.
The companies cooperate with several subcontractors regarding a solution in the innovation project, where drones can deliver packages weighing up to 3-4 kg directly to the WTG nacelle. The task isn't a walk in the park. The nacelles are moving in order to follow the wind, the blades are rotating, and the SOV is constantly working in new areas in the offshore wind farm. The project is sponsored by the European Regional Development Fund and runs until June 2020.
