Previously we talked about this amazing drone by Aerones that removes ice from gigantic wind turbines. The drone is capable of infinite flight, which can save a lot of time in the cleanup process. It provides great efficiency in the workplace, needing only a day to clean 10 full turbines. It has a line connecting to a water and power source while it does its work, making it capable of continuous work.
This makes the Aerones Drone a highly desirable tool in the field. It makes workload lighter for human workers, while also keeping them from harm. No more going to incredibly high turbines for external maintenance. No more taking weeks to get the job done. And most importantly, no more cold related injuries or height accidents.
Aerones Drone On The Go:
Today we look at the drone in action. You can see the speed and efficiency the drone can provide. It is almost relaxing to watch, as the UAV cleans the frosted external layer of the turbines. Using its powerful water jet streams, it acts like a power-washer that takes flight to get to its target.
Amazingly enough, it can also be used at any weather condition. Its powerful propellers and stabilization system can navigate through harsh weather. As long as the power and water supplies remain intact, that is. Nevertheless, it is still a powerful machine with impressive turbine power. It can stay leveled to clean its target even at the strongest winds or snow storms.
A similar scenario would have required human workers to let the storm pass through or wait for fairer weather. With this drone, there won’t be any obstacles or delays. Efficiency and simplicity in the field.
As of right now, the drone requires a small team of people to make sure it gets the job done. It comes from a mobile truck equipped with the necessary tools like generators and cleaning agents. This makes the drone service completely mobile, as it can just move around the turbines without attaching to any of them.
Soon we may even see the drone completely automated. With newer programs in production to remove the human aspect, we may see these cleaning drones completely independent in the near future.
