  • Wind Turbine Third field test at the final review meeting at CRESThe third demo at CRES during the final project review meeting was successfully carried out on 14/05/2019, and was witnessed by the EC project officer. 06 August 2019
  • Test Scenario before an incoming storm.jpg Second field trial test at CRES, GreeceOur second field trial test at CRES was successful. It gave us a first definitive positive result demonstrating that our overall system is working. Congratulation to everyone in the team, and especially to IKH and LSBIC who have made the platform and vacuum based end-effector working in the sky. 06 August 2019

  • Suspended test demonstrates that the whole system is working crop Suspended test demonstrates that the whole system is workingA fully suspended test has been performed in TWI's optical lab. During the test, a sucking robot which carried the shearography was firmly attached to a wind turbine blade sample which stood vertically on an optical table. Good shearography fringe patterns were acquired. 21 March 2017
  • Oscillation Measurement on Wind Turbine Blade Oscillation Measurement on Wind Turbine BladeOne of the main challenges of inspecting a wind turbine blade on site, using a laser-based technique like shearography is coping with the oscillation of the blade in a windy environment. 22 December 2016
