Today practically all utility scale wind turbines are equipped with SCADA control systems. This has, in turn, paved the way for the advent of Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS), which have seen rapid adoption in recent years. All of this means that data is being generated and used extensively in the operation of and maintenance planning for wind turbines.
The industry does have a uniform information exchange standard for monitoring and control of wind power plants. This is known as IEC 61400-25 and was first released some 15 years ago in 2006. The standard provides the possibility to design interoperable products and systems, but there is more work to do.
Clobotics Digital blade repair, a revolutionary methodology for supporting and documenting a craftsman's work. By using the state of the art technology for assessing the blade condition and documenting electronically the entire blade repair process, Clobotics digitalizes the entire workflow and enables the effective use of artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce both the time and the cost of maintaining WTG machines. The blade repair process is digitalized via our app and supports the repair crew with procedures, work instruction and guidelines during the blade repair. The app ensures that all processes are being followed and documented seamlessly.
Clobotics digital blade repair is based on merging state of the art technology, inhouse training and quality management. It features a seamless monitoring and management of the entire workflow and cost of blade repair campaigns.
Beyond our blade inspection and repair services, Clobotics offers a number of other services to help our wind asset owner customers including:
1. Internal blade inspections by robot
