Strat Aero has been awarded a wind turbine inspection contract with Westar Energy, an electricity provider in the state of Kansas, USA. This is the company's first wind inspection and data analysis contract utilising its Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and proprietary software.
Under the terms of the contract, Strat Aero will initially inspect 53 turbines in two of five fields operated by Westar at a rate of six turbines per day. The initial value of the contract is US$ 26,000 but with a total of 312 turbines on site there is scope for the initial contract announced to be extended to cover the remaining 259 turbines across Westar's five fields, as well as others operated by Westar.
