Wind Turbine Breakthrough

by | Feb 19, 2024

This week the team has demonstrated the latest Aspira technology breakthrough, cleaning a wind turbine with ORE Catapult. This is the final stage of our ground breaking project supported by Innovate UK. We have significantly developed the Aspira technology platform and overcome a number of significant challenges in the process.

The Aspiracopter tracks the blade surface using LiDAR 3D navigation, a step-up from GPS. We’re ready to help wind turbine operators to safely increase energy output from dirty wind turbines, which are compromised by green matter and other deposits which spoil the aerofoil. The team will soon clean turbines to restore efficacy and contribute to the green agenda of partners.

Aspira Aerial Applications Ltd is a leading technology company developing new, safer ways of surveying, maintaining and treating tall buildings and structures with a range of specialist coatings by using a bespoke Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Their primary aim is to support the green agenda by applying coatings that actively clean buildings and reduce air pollution and particulate matter, as well as to mitigate the risks of working at height.
