Wind Turbine Blade Inspections

Industry-leading blade inspections

Drone inspections are the preferred solution for wind turbine blade inspections. Not only are drones safer and more cost-effective they are also more efficient. Wind turbine drone inspection can detect and map blade damages at a fraction of the downtime normally associated with traditional methods. Our industry-leading blade inspection services are available across the island of Ireland. As an Irish-based company, we can quickly respond to your needs and schedule inspections around variables such as weather forecast and maintenance downtime. Even if we are weathered off it is easy for us to come back and inspect on another day.
