AIRFUSION INKS DEAL WITH NATURAL POWER FOR BLADE INSPECTION/ASSET MANAGEMENT

AirFusion, developers of innovative AI-powered damage detection and predictive analytics SaaS solutions, today announced a long-term contract with Natural Power for its AirFusion Wind solution. Natural Power is recognized across the renewables sector for its leading position in inspection services for energy infrastructure including wind turbine blades. The company will use AirFusion Wind as part of its wind fleet inspection services specificly for processing the image based data capture during the blade inspections for wind turbines, improve reliability, and streamline workflows to maximize energy production, revenue, and profitability.

“We are delighted to be able to add AirFusion as a key partner in delivering the quality reports we produce on behalf of our clients," said Craig Gordon Global Head of inspection services at Natural Power. "We wanted an approach that delivered fast and accurate analysis of our image based inspection data – for onshore and offshore assets --- so that our clients, the asset owners, are able to make data-driven decisions about their fleet."

AirFusion Wind transforms pixel-based inspection imagery from drones, ground-based sensors and other image capture tools, in minutes, into a complete analytic report – that provides all data online to the user --- that can be used across the enterprise/asset owner. AirFusion Wind delivers faster, more accurate analysis of wind turbine inspection data, enabling proactive, predictive maintenance that significantly reduces the risks of failure, excessive downtime and performance-based revenue loss. 

 “We are thrilled to collaborate with one of the world's most respected inspection company for renewable energy and a forward-looking thought leader in the broader energy sector,” said Edward Mier, CEO at AirFusion. “AirFusion Wind complements Natural Power’s expertise in wind fleet inspection and is a powerful tool that can handle the demand, scale, and complexities of autonomous wind turbine inspections.”

 “Natural Power prides itself on partnering with companies at the leading edge of inspections technology and Air Fusion was selected on this basis.  They are able to match our focus on excellence in the delivery of reliable, quality driven services to the market place.  The AirFusion solution enables Natural Power to deliver timely data to our clients to assist them to make value led judgements on their assets.  The team at Natural Power is committed to delivering the full suite of inspections to the renewable industry and the partnership with AirFusion clearly adds strength to our offering,” said Euan Fenelon, Director of Operations and Asset Management at Natural Power.

artificial intelligence based blade inspection

"Today, the O&M market faces numerous challenges: ageing infrastructure that requires +95% uptime and maximum generative efficiency, price pressure across energy markets, the requirement for inspections to deliver better, instantly actionable data, the transition to drone-based inspections with more data increasing the time and costs required for inspection reporting and analysis, all causing unaided, 100% human-centric analysis to be economically unsustainable. AI is the only solution that can provide the accuracy and scale needed."
