Applications for the Energy Market

About the Wind turbine Market Segment

The major growth driver of the global Wind Turbine Market is the shift from non-renewable energy to renewable energy. As generating electricity from the wind does not cause any pollution and it is eco-friendly, it is preferred over thermal power plants in areas where the wind speeds are suitable throughout the year. Another key factor for growth is the technological advancement in Wind Turbines which has helped in reducing the cost of turbines. The wind industry has already moved from the margins of the energy sector to the mainstream of energy production, for example in 2021 it covered 15% of Europe’s demand for energy. But to reach a goal of exceeding 8,000 GW of installed wind capacity worldwide by 2050, wind energy deployment must rapidly accelerate within this decade.

A lack of facilitating infrastructure is seen as a major limiting factor in the wind industry’s growth. In many countries, the lack of infrastructure, such as grid and transmission networks, logistics highways, and ports, is curtailing the expansion of wind power and stifling the very innovation needed to transform the energy system. Industry, governments, and financial institutions all have a role to play in creating the right conditions for investment in infrastructure to enable the next generation of wind projects, some of which are already in the planning pipeline today. Infrastructure development must be aligned with long-term net zero strategies, including regional market integration and green industry development.

What types of wind turbine farms can we perform on?

Onshore wind farms

Onshore wind power refers to turbines that are located on land and use the wind to generate electricity. They are commonly located in isolated areas.

Offshore wind farms

Offshore wind power is a process of generating electricity from wind energy by establishing wind farms in water bodies, generally in the ocean.

Use Case - Onshore maintenance

How do they solve it today ?

Currently, the operators do maintenance operations manually, in some cases with the support of cranes to move components or equipment.

The drone can be used to transport equipment, tools and spare parts for maintenance and repair activities.

What are the advantages of using FlyingBasket's FB3? 

Compared to Cranes

- Easier access to difficult environments

- Less setup time

- Less cost (3x)

- Less risk in case of an accident

- Ability to reach higher heights (>50m)

Compared to Workforce

− Less risk in transporting weights up to the top 

− Less time needed to perform the maintenance/repair operations

− Lower response time in case of needed equipment/tools

Use Case -  Offshore wind turbine maintenance

How do they solve it today? 

Offshore wind turbines are exposed to extreme environments (wind, rain, lightning strikes, etc.) and therefore need more maintenance and repair procedures than onshore ones.

Today, the logistics between platforms and wind turbines is done with the support of vessels or helicopters.

What are the advantages of using FlyingBasket's FB3? 

Compared to a

- Less time for deployment

- Lower cost (x4,5)

- Less risk as there is no helicopter crew and operator on the turbine is safer

Compared to a Crew Transfer Vessel

- Less time to deploy and receive necessary equipment

- Less costs (x3)

- Less risk of incidents for the crew

Use Case - Offshore fast delivery

How do they solve it today? 

Vessels are used to transport equipment, spare parts and the personnel from shore to platforms or vece versa. Helicopters are used with other vessels for fast and wave-independent transfers directly to the top of the turbine, and enable a range of service tasks, including the transfer of technicians or spare parts and tools.

The drone can be used to improve transport of equipment, spare parts and tools in a faster and cheaper manner directly to wind turbines.

What are the advantages of using FlyingBasket's FB3 

Compared to

a Helicopter

− Less response time (once the drone is integrated into operating infrastructure)

− Less costs to operate (x4,5)

− Less risk for crew members

Compared to Crew

Transfer Vessel

− Faster delivery

− Less costs (x3)

− Less risk for crew members

− Less crew needed
