Field trials of the SheaRIOS wind turbine blade (WTB) inspection system commenced in November 2021 at The Centre For Renewable Energy Sources (CRES) Demonstration Wind Farm in Keratea-Attica, Greece.
The subsystems developed by the various European partners were successfully integrated and tested on-site.
System deployment trials culminated with the climbing robot successfully scaling the wind turbine tower and projecting the crawling robot alongside the WTB.
Further on-site trials, which will involve the deployment of the robotic crawler on the WTB surface, are scheduled for January 2022.
