Remote Inspection Technology Evaluation (RITE)

Supporting the test, demonstration and assessment of remote turbine inspection technologies

contact the team

The Remote Inspection Technology Evaluation (RITE) service is an integrated range of services to support test, demonstration and assessment of remote turbine inspection technologies.

Using the Levenmouth 7MW offshore wind demonstration turbine, we provide an open access facility for the evaluation of remote turbine inspection technologies.

Experts from ORE catapult will work with technology developers to provide bespoke test plans addressing their specific testing needs. This may include research, demonstration and validation, benchmarking against established methods (e.g. rope access techniques), and training. We can also provide Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicle (ROAV) platforms for sensor demonstration.

RITE is designed to de-risk the use of remote inspection technologies and provide confidence in the quality of their outputs.
