** CHALLENGE Wind turbines are placed in high wind areas, and repairs can only be done at low wind speed, low humidity, low wave height and with no risk of lightning, leaving only 25% of the days in the repair season. Altogether, a typical manual repair costs €32,000, and is done by Rope Access Technicians hanging in ropes from the nacelle of the wind turbine.
** BENEFITS OF THE INNOVATION Rope Robotics has invented and patented the world’s first robot for performing all the phases of wind turbine blade leading edge maintenance and repair fast and reliably without having people performing hazard task from ropes. The robot is able to do: • Surface area inspection and documentation • Sanding, grinding and filling • Coating • After repair inspection and documentation All this is done while the robot attaches itself to the blade with vacuum, and it is done faster and with less requirements to more than doubling the available working days to 54%. A standard repair including inspection costs only €7,000.
** IMPACT EU intends to double the wind capacity by 2030 to reduce CO2 emissions. The global wind energy O&M market is expected to grow to €19bn by 2025 and the aging fleet in Europe represents the majority of this revenue opportunity. Leading edge repair represents approx. 50% of the repair market and is estimated to be €483m by MAKE Consulting. Rope Robotics expects a turnover on sales of robots of €60m by 2022 and an explosive growth in the following years. Customers are producers such as Siemens Gamesa and Vestas, wind farm owners such as Vattenfall and Ørsted, and service providers as Totalwind.
** THE PROJECT A series of 12 robots will be built and integrated with tools and remote control to demonstrate to two key customers, Siemens Gamesa and Vestas, that the robots deliver as promised. A customer deployment program on commercial terms with a fleet of 25 robots will be developed to gain market acceptance with additional wind turbine owners.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "WINDTRRO" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
