Vestas introduces BladeRobots A/S as a standalone company with an automated robotic technology solution that will enable a highly efficient and scalable solution for blade leading edge maintenance. The solution is originally developed and incubated at Vestas and has been spun out as standalone company to accelerate time-to-market and build scale.
BladeRobots A/S offers a unique solution that performs automated blade leading edge maintenance up to four times faster than conventional manual methods. This results in a cost-competitive and highly scalable solution with improved safety standards for the involved technicians. The novel robot solution can improve wind turbines’ Annual Energy Production by restoring the aerodynamic performance and reducing turbine downtime. The robotic solution leverages artificial intelligence to quickly adapt to all blade types in the industry.
