Following successful wind-turbine blade inspections at Sheringham Shoal, Martek Aviation have been awarded a two-year Framework Contract with SSE Plc to inspect their 683 wind turbines across 47 sites throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

Drone inspections

According to Martek Aviation, UAS’s make aerial surveys more accessible, affordable, and easier to perform, enabling critical infrastructure inspections to be carried out in minutes. Drone platforms can also be deployed in areas which are difficult or dangerous for surveying personnel to access, making them suitable for more challenging offshore applications.

The Framework Contract, starting next month, covers inspection of a variety of wind turbines, each with three blades from a range of manufacturers
