Santa Cruz, Calif.-based InspecTools Inc. has announced a strategic partnership with Vestas in which they will work together to deploy drone-based inspections of wind turbine blades in North America.

For inclusion in its BladeCare service package in North America, Vestas has selected InspecTools’ UAS inspection systems.

“Our partnership will allow InspecTools and Vestas to immediately launch commercial-scale drone inspections operations,” notes Chris Bley, CEO of InspecTools.

Peter Wells, vice president of service for Vestas, adds, “InspecTools’ technology is operationally ready and commercially scalable – which means we can offer our customers safer, faster and more effective blade inspections immediately.”

Nice win for the InspecTools team. Looking forward to learning more about the BladeCare offering. If you remember, GE invested with Airware for similar reasons.
