Automated inspection set for a vital role in the future of offshore wind

As we look ahead to a prolonged rise in global demand for renewable energy, it’s clear that offshore wind is primed for explosive growth. The opportunities are significant and abundant, but so are the questions, including how operators can efficiently and quickly scale up and maintain capacity.

According to Kieren Paterson, Managing Director of UK-based Marshall Futureworx, part of the solution is increased use of automated inspection technologies.

This year, the group launched its first product, Lilypad, which uses beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) UAVs to provide dynamic on-demand inspection services for offshore wind operators.

We caught up with Kieren to hear his thoughts on how cross-sector collaborations can deliver BVLOS inspection and maintenance at scale, unlocking the efficiencies that will take offshore wind to new heights.
