Innovative solutions to meet the needs of the wind industry
Launched in 2017, SupAirVision develops innovative solutions (drones, sensors and data) to meet the needs of the wind industry
France has more than 8,000 installed wind turbines (50% of which are within a 300 km radius of SupAirVision) and represents the 4th largest market in Europe, behind Germany No. 1 with 30,000 wind turbines. In a market estimated at more than 100,000 wind turbines in Europe, most of which are in their second decade of operation, the need for maintenance and diagnostics is real. Wind turbines are also becoming more powerful, taller and equipped with longer blades.
The evolution of regulations – the new ICPE (Installations Classées Protection de l’Environnement) has required blade inspections every six months since 2020 in France – has also quadrupled the need for inspections, whereas the practice was often to inspect the blades every two years.
The volumes of data to be collected and processed are becoming gigantic. Automating these steps makes fault detection more reliable and optimises the management of the wind farms.
Expert in wind turbine blade diagnostics, SupAirVision contributes to the performance of wind farms by innovating on the drone, sensors and data.
The funds raised will be used to develop Volta, the first drone-based lightning path diagnostic system, and to deploy it on the German and Northern European markets (onshore and offshore). The drone and its associated image processing optimise the monitoring of blades and will become indispensable for implementing effective predictive maintenance, whether for onshore or offshore wind turbines.”
Who is the proposed solution for?
