AROWTRACTOR: PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGIES FOR WIND TURBINE BLADE INSPECTIONS USING DRONES & EO/IR SENSORS
Regular preventative maintenance can significantly extend the viable lifespan of turbines and ensure that they output maximum power in all conditions. Inspecting them presents a challenge, however, as they are tall structures and the internal structure of the blades can develop structural problems that may be invisible from the outside. To overcome this challenge the AROWTRACTOR system utilizes the fact that the internal structure of a wind turbine blade heats and cools at different rates. By measuring these small differences using a highly sophisticated, specially calibrated infrared camera on our special drones, we can gather this information rapidly, needing the turbine to be stopped for only minutes instead of hours.
Eliminate Serious Financial Liabilities Without expert planning, common area components within wind turbines can become serious financial liabilities. Through careful inspection and financial analysis, AROWTRACTOR Drones will determine the longevity of your common area components and the amount of reserve funding required for you to adequately meet its replacement needs. Our staff of certified drone experts, are recognized for their expertise in reserve studies.
Plan Ahead and Create Peace of Mind Our experienced wind turbine drone pilots are able to provide you with a cost effective reserve study that give you peace of mind. A Reserve Study is a comprehensive, budget-planning tool. It consists of a physical and financial analysis and is based on the common area components described within the association’s governing documents. The study acts as a road map for planning the wind farm’s maintenance, repair, and replacement needs. The Sky is Unlimited with Drones Drones are revolutionizing industries across the globe. From changing the way fires are fought to how engineers inspect Infrastructure like buildings, cell towers, power lines, solar and wind farms, from the way land surveying is done to 3D modelling of construction sites, advances in drone technology are pushing boundaries and enabling innovation. At the forefront of drone expansion is AROWTRACTOR Drones, the leader in commercial drone services, training, consulting and deployment. With over 2400 trained and accredited pilots, the best and latest equipment, the most respected brands like ZM INTERACTIVE and FLIR, 1700 engineers and the most knowledgeable Industry-specific subject matter experts, we have global reach with local access. All at prices that are the best in the business.
