Cornis Blade Inspection

High resolution photographic blade inspection from the ground

Dear clients and partners,

Winter is almost here and we hope your wind turbines are running at full speed all over the world! It has been a very exciting year for Cornis and the last months were no exception:

  • Faster Cornis inspections
  • More and more offshore inspections
  • More than 1 300 blades inspected with Cornis Panoblade system in 2014
  • Cornis receives the first award at the 2014 Cleantech Republic Contest

In our previous newsletter, we introduced the latest version of Cornis Panoblade field software. Today, we are very proud thatone of our client managed to inspect 8 turbines within a day in September. A few weeks later, Cornis team was inspecting 19 turbines in 3 days in Texas. Because we know time is key, especially in offshore, we are constantly developing our tools to help technicians do faster yet precise inspections.  Our offshore clients now expect a minimum of 3 turbines to be inspected in a day. The full scanning of a turbine (3 blades) takes 1,5 to 2,5 hours depending on the model: This time includes transportation by vessel from one turbine to the other..

With 2014 coming to an end, we would like to thank all our clients and partners for their ongoing confidence and loyalty, enabling us to inspect all type of wind turbines. More than 1 300 blades from about 15 different manufacturers have been inspected with our system this year! !

We also would like to thank the juries from the Cleantech Republic 2014 contest for awarding us with the First prizel. We are honored to represent innovation both in the wind industry and in France. 

We now look forward to 2015! We promise a year full of new developments at Cornis. The first one will be the launch of a new web interface for our clients. Comparing blade defects over time and managing your blade data from a central and secured location will be even easier.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
