AeroVision Canada forward and up!
Today I am proud to announce that AeroVision Canada Inc. has completed its 100th wind turbine inspection. This represents roughly 25% of our 2017 turbine inspection portfolio. We expect a significant number of additional towers to be added to our program by years end in preparation for the 2018 spring inspection cycle.
In conjunction with our ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, we have refined the workflow required to inspect, report and deliver the critical data to our clients with a strong emphasis on flight safety and risk mitigation.
Our clients enjoy significantly shorter turbine pause times with total visual coverage of the complete top end including all angles of each blade, nacelle structure, ventilation, lighting and weather instrumentation. Flight crews operate independently on-site, without the need for other turbine technicians to be present. This provides additional cost savings in conjunction with the reduced downtime during the inspection. While the flight crew is capturing the data, previously captured data is synced to our office where it is assessed and developed into a top-quality report that is both visual and interactive in our cloud-based 3D portal and as a downloadable PDF.
At the end of 2016, the Canadian wind industry reported an installed capacity of 11,898 MW; enough energy to power 3 million homes or 6% of Canada’s electrical demand. With the ever-expanding footprint of Canadian wind turbines and the need to support previously installed and functioning sites, AeroVision Canada has aligned its business model to serve the wind industry, as it has the oil and gas industry and will continue to expand its service locations across Canada over the next 12 months.
