Sending personnel to inspect wind turbines for damage can be a costly, dangerous, and time-consuming process, which is why advances in robotics and autonomous systems have the potential to make important contributions to reducing the cost of energy and the inherent risks of offshore working.

Remotely-operated vehicles (ROVs) like oil and gas specialists ATAM Group’s MagTrack robotic crawler represent a breakthrough in offshore wind ROV technology. The MagTrack uses magnetic technology to grip and climb the turbine’s tower, beaming back images of its blades using an inbuilt high definition camera.
