MAKING DRONES SMARTER.

Autonomous drone inspection: AI enables, for the first time, customers to perform independent automated drone inspections. An international patent-protected technology for visual inspection and contactless lightning protection measurement for on- and offshore wind turbines.

Wind energy in Germany

Why is Germany perfect for wind energy? To answer this question, we should first understand the fundamental rules of constructing the perfect wind farm and what conditions should be met.

Myths about wind energy

Wind energy is becoming increasingly economical, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and air pollution. Despite its great potential, wind power has been criticised for some time, or rather always. For a long time now, there have been many myths about wind energy. We would like to address these myths and explain this issue as well.

Wind energy and nature conservation

Wind energy is an essential part of the energy transformation and contributes significantly to the achievement of climate goals. Nevertheless, the construction of wind turbines is an intervention in nature and landscape – therefore, nature conservation must be considered during the planning and construction phase.

Contactless lightning protection measurement

Validated and Verified by TÜV SÜD

TÜV SÜD’s independent validation and verification confirmed that the measurement system is suitable as an alternative test method for the section of a WT’s lightning protection system extending from the receptors (lightning arrestors) to the blade flanges of the rotor blades in accordance with the Technical Guideline of the German Wind Energy Association.

Drone-based Inspection

Highlights

Drones are increasingly being used as an alternative for the inspection of wind turbines. TOPseven’s AI takes the technology to the next level: The autonomous drone inspections document damages and identifies possible defects in the lightning protection system.

Enabling

Independent use of fully autonomous drones by the customer, without specialized pilots.

Due to the independent monitoring via AI the customer doesn’t require a specialized pilot for the autonomous drone inspection. Thus, the customer needs a minimum training to get started.

Analysis

Industry standard reporting with complete and reproducible images.

The AI controlled camera delivers continues, high-quality images with seamless overlapping.

Efficiency

Autonomous drone based inspection only requires a single stop of the wind turbine.

For the visual inspection of all blades and the tower, as well as the contactless measurement of the lightning protection, the wind turbine only needs to be stopped once.

Lightning

Possible defects are being identified and located by special contactless sensors.

In only a few minutes the TOPseven drone checks the lightning protection of the system - contactless. Special sensors detect the defect and can exactly localize the interruption.
