MEET EDDIE – THE WIND INDUSTRY'S FIRST IMAGE-BASED AUTONOMOUS AI
A PROACTIVE APPROACH TO BLADE MANAGEMENT
MEET EDDIE – THE WIND INDUSTRY'S FIRST IMAGE-BASED AUTONOMOUS AIDesigned specifically for the wind industry, EDDIE processes inspection data fast and with 98.8% confidence in analysis accuracy. EDDIE works 24/7/365 to save time, increase efficiencies and enable teams to focus on strategic initiatives rather than data processing.
MAXIMIZE THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR BLADESWith streamlined software for UAV operators, BladeEdge Capture Assurance Tool℠ ensures you capture the data needed while you’re in the field – decreasing the possibility of human error, and making sure every square centimeter of your infrastructure is captured.
A PROACTIVE APPROACH TO BLADE MANAGEMENTOne of the secrets to obtaining long-term wind farm optimization is adopting a data-driven blade management program. With BladeEdge℠, the wind industry’s first AI-driven analytics portal, raw data from aerial inspection is transformed into actionable intelligence.
Improve Wind Turbine Efficiency
Degraded blades lead to a decrease in wind turbine efficiency and thus a loss in Annual Energy Production (AEP) revenue. Proactive maintenance is critical, inspections performed with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV or drones) are streamlining the industry by gathering data that allows for data-driven decision making for true blade lifecycle management.
Are You Maximizing Your AEP Revenue?
Degraded blade conditions can lead to 5-15% wind farm efficiency loss. This creates a significant gap between potential and actual revenue. Our Revenue Loss Calculator can estimate how much your wind farm could be losing.
Our revenue loss calculator can estimate how much your wind farm could be losing. Degraded blade conditions can lead to upwards of 25% wind farm efficiency loss. This creates a significant gap between potential and actual revenue.
