Korean utility Korea Western Power conducted safety inspection on 16MW Hwasun Wind Farm using drones. The company explained that this is the second drone employed safety inspection following 2019. Autonomous drones approached blades to take photographs, sending high-resolution data.
The utility added that the inspection is jointly conducted with Hanseo University, which is one of aviation specialized educational institutions, to train students about drone applied turbine inspection.
Korea Western Power initially implemented drone inspection back in 2016. It has trained over 80 employees on the drone flight since.
