AROWIND PROJECT: An Autonomous Inspection Solution for Offshore Wind That Drastically Reduces Costs, Risk, and Emissions
By Chris Gilson, CEO, Voyis
The ocean sector is rapidly evolving as green energy demand fuels incredible growth in offshore wind. It is becoming evident that the technologies and methodologies historically used in the offshore industry to monitor and maintain assets must also evolve to address new inspection challenges and tighter cost constraints. Moreover, a global pandemic has catalyzed survey operators to begin adopting approaches that enable remote operations and reduce reliance on human factors. Together these trends will drive radical innovation in autonomy and platform miniaturization that has the potential to drastically reduce the operational costs associated with subsea survey.
