Using robots to maintain offshore wind farms

BladeBUG Limited is developing a unique walking robot to remotely inspect, maintain and repair wind turbine blades, helped by funding from the #ISCF Robots for a Safer World challenge. Since the project started in March 2019, the team has expanded, built a successful partnership with the Offshore Catapult and developed the robot to a standard allowing it to be tested on a wind turbine. It’s a great example of how investment from the ISCF makes a real impact on businesses and innovation in the UK.
