How do you as an owner or operator keep up with the increasing need for safe and efficient ways to inspect your blades, anticipate failures, expand the life span of the components, and ensure assets are generating maximum output?
With our solution, UpTower helps you understand the condition of your blades, monitors any discrepancies, and advises the level of the urgency of any items with state of the art blade inspections using fully automated drones. This allows for a safe and efficient method to manage the wind turbine blade lifecycle and extend the life span of the highly critical, high dollar assets.
What can our drone program do for you?
When choosing UpTower, you will see an industry-leading performance, including less downtime due to inspection efficiency, a better understanding of the condition of the components, and greater production per turbine while being able to effectively plan any needed repairs. Our drone inspections utilize sophisticated and state of the art automation to lower the amount of time at the tower and decrease climbs and downtime.
We are a full scope turnkey service company, not just a drone service. The major benefit is that you can be more hands-off and not have to waste your valuable technician’s time as you can trust that we have the qualifications to shut down, start-up, and lockout as needed.
With our versatile background, we offer an extensive Life Extension and Enhancement Program (LEEP) that combines our drone capabilities with our service and End of Warranty inspection background. This gives you the most knowledge about your turbine by monitoring the conditions of your assets and major components. In turn, this keeps you ahead of catastrophic failures and ultimately extends and enhances the life span of the turbine keeping it running for years to come. This allows you to plan more effectively for repairs and truly understand the condition of the turbines to better support these assets.
Let us show you how UpTower's Life Extension & Enhancement Program (LEEP) can add years to the expected life span of your turbines.
Our reports are easy to read and give your teams detailed information to help guide you to determine if a blade needs to be serviced immediately, or if the fix can wait. Because a drone inspection is less expensive, assets can be scanned for issues more frequently so fiberglass repair crews, possibly cranes, and budgets can be scheduled more economically.
Drone inspections mitigate safety risks by eliminating or reducing the amount of climbs needed per turbine . With the inspection completed via drone, only the repair needs to involve a climb. Drone inspection offers the best balance of cost, quality, and turbine downtime.
Insurers can offer customers a discount if the assets are in good condition and they monitor their components.
Buyers can request a report detailing blade and turbine health. Know what you are purchasing!
Are the blades in the expected condition before turn-over from warranty? You don’t know if you don’t inspect.
Owners can quickly assess damage after a storm or other damaging event for insurance claims.
