Company

Pro-Drone's mission is to revolutionize how wind turbines are inspected by bringing them into the 21st century. It is our belief that the only way to truly make wind energy widespread is to make it competitive with fossil fuels and we are determined to play our part. We have found that current inspection solutions are either outdated, unsuitable or too unreliable to be adopted by the energy industry.

That is why our core values are robustness, safety and data accessibility. Inspections are much more than just collecting data, it is about leveraging it to deliver efficient operations to the asset manager.. Inspections 2.0.

The sky is not the limit,
it's our office.

Solution

Autonomous Flight

Our proprietary drone agnostic flight control software ensures a safe and reliable survey with an average resolution of 0.4mm per pixel. The drone autonomously sets and follows an optimal path that covers all four sides of the blade guaranteeing full blade coverage and consistent overlap.

Processing and Report Generation

Inspection data is processed and made available through our web platform BladeInsight, allowing inspectors to generate analysis in a fast and intuitive way that can be extracted in fully customizable reports or accessed directly from another service. The inspection is supported by our AI automatic damage identification assistant that will flag damages to reduce inspection time and help ensure no damage goes undetected.

Analytics and Asset Management

Analytics and asset management tools on BladeInsight generate automatic insights regarding the status of the assets by identifying trends, generating alarms, allowing full damage traceability and suggesting operational optimizations.
