Aero Enterprise launches partner model for airborne inspection of wind turbines

Words By: Aero Enterprise

Linz, Austria, 17th August 2018. The Austrian company Aero Enterprise offers a cooperation model for the efficient inspection of wind turbines for wind energy consultants and service companies throughout Europe. With the new concept, Aero Enterprise supports its customers and partners in the progressive requirements for digitization.

The partner model and scope for the inspection of wind turbines are modular and therefore very flexible:

Rotor blades and tower can be inspected by the cooperation partner even with multicopter drones. Aero Enterprise actively supports the transition to digital asset assessment in methodology and flight procedures.

The data collected (by the partner) are processed by Aero Enterprise, standardized and made available in a 3D environment for better orientation using the licence free "AERO-View". Depending on the agreed service model, the extensive data collected can be analyzed, quantified, and classified for damage by Aero Enterprise itself, the partner or experts, using the "AERO-Lyse" license software. With the help of the incorporated database, damaged areas are automatically recorded with a single click in a digital report.

Faster service, shorter downtime

With the airborne, digital asset assessment the customers save time, money and personnel. Unsafe industrial climbing in bad weather conditions can be avoided and downtimes can be reduced. ‘We are currently developing a machine-learning process that will further accelerate the process of finding potential defects through image matching’ adds Robert Hörmann, CEO of Aero Enterprise.

Aero Enterprise at WindEnergy Hamburg

Aero Enterprise will be exhibiting its software packages and its latest drone equipment for offshore wind turbines from 25th to 28th September 2018 at WindEnergy Hamburg, Hall B1 at booth 201.1.

About Aero Enterprise

Aero Enterprise inspects both onshore and offshore wind turbines with flying robots. In particular, the drones automatically inspect the rotor blades and surface structures for wind power operators, service companies, experts and insurance companies. The collected data by the self-developed AERO-SensorCopter are quickly and safely classified and documented using the proprietary AERO- Software package.

Aero Enterprise GmbH was founded in 2013. Managing partners are the former aircraft technician and military pilot Robert Hörmann and the trained technician and experienced consultant Peter Kurt Fromme-Knoch. The focus of Aero Enterprise GmbH, based in Linz/Austria, is quality assurance of wind turbines and other vertical objects of all kind such as bridges and dams.
