Wind Turbine Drone Inspection Companies UK
What Is Drone Wind Turbine Inspection?
A drone wind turbine inspection is a specialised technique where drones, equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors, are used to meticulously inspect wind turbines. This inspection process plays a pivotal role in the early detection of potential surface damage, wear and tear, and other issues that could affect a turbine’s performance and longevity.
Drone inspections enable the swift surveying of large areas, capturing detailed images of turbine surfaces for comprehensive analysis. The drones actively search for a variety of defects and issues including blade de-lamination, core defects, internal component failure, cracks, erosion, and debris accumulation on blades, tower damage, nacelle damage, and bolt damages.

Interior Wind Turbine Blade Confined Space Inspection
Harnessing the prowess of advanced confined space drones, we perform thorough interior inspections of wind turbine blades, a task made challenging by restricted spaces, limited visibility, and potential presence of harmful substances. Our drones, fitted with high-resolution cameras, confidently navigate these cramped spaces.
Deployed into turbine blades via small openings, the drones are expertly guided by remote control, capturing in-depth imagery of the blade’s internal structure. Each image is geotagged, enabling precise identification of damage or defect locations within the blade’s intricate interior.
Additionally, our drones are equipped with thermographic cameras to identify heat anomalies, which could indicate unseen issues. By accessing all surfaces of the blade, including technician-inaccessible areas, we ensure a comprehensive inspection. Reducing the need for technician entry into confined spaces.

Drone Use For Wind Turbines
Accelerating Wind Farm Inspections
We can perform inspections of whole wind farms in a single day. This comprehensive inspection service significantly surpasses the efficiency of traditional inspection methods, which are typically limited to inspecting one or two turbines per day.
Depending on the size and location of the turbines, as well as the specific inspection requirements, our drones can conduct between 3-4 inspections in a single day. A single drone can complete a detailed inspection of a wind turbine in less than an hour, a dramatic improvement on the 3-6 hours required for traditional methods.
For instance, our Elios 3 drone is particularly efficient, capable of inspecting all four sides of all three blades in just 18-25 minutes. This represents an exponential increase in inspection efficiency, allowing you to maximise the operational uptime of your wind farm. By enabling more frequent and comprehensive inspections, we ensure early detection of potential issues and contribute to the prolonged lifespan of your wind turbines.
Matching Your Needs
Reduce Your Wind Turbine Inspection Costs
We offer not just efficiency and safety, but also substantial cost savings. By choosing us, you’re choosing lower inspection costs and reduced labour expenses. Our sophisticated drones can inspect multiple turbines per day, thereby reducing labour costs further and enhancing efficiency.
Traditional inspection methods require significant downtime, but our services dramatically reduce this. Our drones can accomplish detailed inspections in a fraction of the time. Additionally, our drones can be deployed to even the most remote locations, meaning there are no extravagant travel costs involved.
Our drones are capable of accessing hard-to-reach areas of turbines without the need for scaffolding or other equipment, which significantly reduces the equipment costs. All in all, choosing Drone Survey Services for wind turbine inspections means choosing a cost-effective, efficient and high-quality solution. Trust us to be your partner in maintaining your wind turbines in peak condition.
