Wind Turbine Inspection Services for Siemens
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ACTION DRONE INC. ANNOUNCES WIND TURBINE INSPECTION SERVICES FOR SIEMENS
Chula Vista, CA, November 21, 2016 – Action Drone, Inc. (AD) has been officially contracted by Siemens AG to be their worldwide provider of Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) inspections using Action Drones’ sUAS (Small Unmanned Aerial Systems) technology. Action Drone is in development with a new sUAS specifically to create the most efficient methodology and best practices for inspecting WTGs worldwide.
This Action Drone inspection service will significantly lower risk to inspectors and create a more efficient and cost effective way to operate their current business practices. Typically it would take many operators to prepare and harness themselves to cranes, scaffoldings, or rope rappelling equipment, painstakingly inspecting blade segments per section. Weather elements can also hinder workflow and make extreme climates very difficult and dangerous to inspect wind turbines. By utilizing AD sUAS, these risks can be minimized significantly.
In the U.S., Action Drone will be contracting U.S. Part 107 Certified and 333 Exempted pilots. Globally, pilots will be required to acquire their local credentials, and undergo Action Drone and Siemens certifications, safety, protocol, drone and inspection training. Contracted pilots must carry liability insurance to cover his/her drone services with AD drone systems. Work orders will be processed through a highly secured, encrypted, centralized hub. AD will be reviewing operator applicants and credentials in the coming weeks, starting November 21, 2016.
