Two UK companies have demonstrated their technology solutions, alongside GE Renewable Energy and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, to support future offshore wind developments.
Eleven-I and Innvotek carried out the work through GE Renewable Energy and ORE Catapult’s ‘Stay Ashore’ research and development program, and the Robotics Challenge sub project delivered through the Offshore Wind Innovation Hub’s Innovation Exchange (OWiX) in partnership with KTN.
Innvotek, a Cambridge-based innovation consultancy, has been able to further develop a robotic crawler, which uses magnetic technology to attach itself to a turbine generator and autonomously detect the presence of certain features in order to carry out maintenance work.

Derbyshire-based Eleven-I have used the project to develop their structural health monitoring system, which uses software and data analysis to monitor blade health throughout its lifetime.
Both companies were able to make extensive use of the technical support and testing capabilities offered by working directly with ORE Catapult and GE Renewable Energy.
