As we move towards our goal of achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050, we rely more heavily on green energy sources such as wind turbines. The blades of wind turbines are now more than 100 meters in length and they’re being placed further offshore. This means rope access technicians, who inspect, maintain and repair wind turbines, are being put into riskier positions. So, what can we do to help?
Learn how BladeBUG who, with funding from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, are developing a unique walking robot to help technicians maintain wind turbines more safely. See how technology and creative problem solving can be combined to find innovative solutions to real life challenges, using robots to make our world safer.
