Drone Wind Turbine Inspection

Bristol Drones offers a professional wind turbine inspection service that is inexpensive, effective, and high-quality. No matter how difficult your wind turbine aerial inspection project is, Bristol Drones will get it done to your satisfaction.

How Drone Wind Turbine Inspections Work

Bristol Drones’ wind turbine inspection service is simple, straightforward, and professional. We will work with you to arrange your project, step-by-step.

Once Bristol Drones is onsite, we will conduct a thorough inspection of your wind turbines using high-quality visual or thermographic cameras. You can then access the final data immediately afterwards and onsite, to spot problems and swiftly implement solutions.

No matter how complex your drone wind turbine inspection project is, Bristol Drones will deliver the results you need to keep your turbines in full working order.

What Are The Benefits Of Wind Turbine Drone Inspection?

There are plenty of benefits you will enjoy when using drones for your wind turbine inspection project. These include:

Increased Productivity

Without using drones, most wind turbine inspections require more personnel and preparation. However, drone inspections of wind turbines require fewer people and equipment, reducing wind farm downtime so you can maximise energy production.

Safer Inspections

Inspecting a wind turbine can be a dangerous job. But drones can reach high wind turbines with ease, minimising the risk of accidents by reducing the need for onsite personnel accessing the turbine.

Easier Data Sharing

The data collected by our drones can be quickly and easily shared amongst stakeholders in the project. This makes it easier to expedite drone wind turbine inspections, speeding up analysis to identify solutions.

Greater Flexibility

Our drones can fly to those hard-to-reach places that humans can’t access. As a result, Bristol Drones can help your engineers to spot issues that might otherwise have been missed. And because we offer both visual and thermal imaging cameras, you can spot damage or issues of almost any kind.

What is a drone?

Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are small aircraft that are remotely-controlled by pilots on the ground. While they are often used for recreational purposes, drones can also be used for commercial reasons, such as wind turbine inspections or aerial agricultural monitoring.

Are your drones insured?

Bristol Drones’ fleet is fully insured, with up to £10 million public liability cover. All our drones are piloted by fully-insured and experienced operators.

Can your drones fly in bad weather conditions?

Our drones are unable to fly in bad weather conditions, including heavy rain or strong winds. But some of our drone fleets can fly in weak winds or rain at speeds of no more than 27mph. However, this does carry the increased risk of raindrops gathering on the camera lens.

Can your drones operate at night?

We are 100% certified to fly our drones at night. The entire Bristol Drones fleet is equipped with special nighttime technology to capture clear, high-quality photos and videos.

How long can your drones stay in the air for?

Our drones can fly for up to 30 minutes in good weather conditions on one battery charge. However, we always carry enough spare batteries to keep flying for a full day.
