By Wout Ruijter, Principal Engineer at Clobotics
All of us who love wind power know that the key to continued adoption is the relentless pursuit of lower costs on two major fronts: initial capital cost and ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) costs. At Clobotics, our mission is to digitalize, analyze, automate and predict to empower our wind customers to lower maintenance costs and increase annual energy production (AEP).
Turbine blades turn out to be crucial in this mission both because they represent one of the largest categories of maintenance costs, and because their condition has a direct impact on how much energy the wind turbine can produce. While sensor data and information from the turbine’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system can provide clues about a turbine’s blade condition, there is no substitute for a visual inspection.
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
2. Structural inspection of foundation and offshore structures
3. Training of repair techs
4. Turnkey offshore inspections combining drone and robot technologies and including vessel charter and logistics
5. Wind Turbine blade cleaning by drone
