As advanced marine robotics continue to transform the way we work at sea, the team at BladeBUG is on a mission to revolutionize offshore wind turbine inspection and maintenance.

Standard O&M work, including any necessary repairs, is typically performed by rope-access technicians, often working in extreme conditions and during restricted weather windows. While this approach encompasses a range of well-established practices, it also results in a number of inefficiencies, including extended turbine downtime and the expensive use of crew transfer vessels.
