In partnership with Sensoria™ by MISTRAS

Sensoria™ is an innovative 24/7/365 wind blade monitor that detects damages in real time and rapidly alerts operators to damages. Developed by MISTRAS Group, the system’s acoustic emission (AE) sensors are installed within turbine blades to continuously collect and send blade integrity data to the Sensoria™ Insights portal for immediate access. This web-based portal enables operators to easily receive alerts and review data from anywhere at any time, helping them prioritize inspection and maintenance activities to maximize energy generating capacity. Visit sensoriawind.com to see how the Sensoria wind blade monitor helps you gain Edge-to-Edge Intelligence.

Blades Innovator

Arctura’s products increase the power generated by wind farms and decrease operations and maintenance costs, boosting the revenues and profits of our customers – all wind owner-operators and OEMs. Our unique wind farm control algorithm increases annual energy production by 3% or more, without using unreliable models or large datasets for machine learning. Instead, we only require real-time supervisory control data to ensure optimum performance for the present operating conditions. To reduce operations and maintenance costs, we developed a robust, inexpensive blade coating that reduces lightning damage, a major industry pain point, by enhancing the turbine’s lightning protection system.

At ABJ Renewables, we are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.  We are an industry leader with a global footprint providing drone and proprietary inspection solutions to the renewable energy industry, Manufacturers, Power Producers and Service Providers. 

ABJ’s WindVue technology can detect internal WTG blade defects like Balancing Material, Bonding, Delamination, Cracks, Wrinkles, Lighting Damages, etc. as small as 3mm to 4mm with minimal down time of the Wind Turbine.

ABJ’s Ping Monitor using advanced proprietary acoustic based data analytics, Ping Monitor is a world-first device developed to improve preventative maintenance of wind turbine blades, reduce costs, and manage power generation outputs.

LM Wind Power is a world-leading designer and manufacturer of blades for wind turbines, with 13 factories on four continents. Since 1978, we have produced around 228,00 blades, equivalent of 113GW; displacing 242mmt CO2. In 2018 we produced the world’s first wind turbine blade beyond 100 meters in length – the LM 107.0 P – to power GE’s Haliade-X 13 MW: the world’s largest, most powerful offshore wind turbine. LM took industry leading initiative towards carbon neutrality and achieved the landmark of being first “Carbon Neutral” business within wind industry in July 2018.

Aerones is a hardware and software development tech company that manufactures robotic systems for much faster, safer, and efficient blade maintenance and inspection and offers services worldwide. To access the blades of wind turbines that are becoming bigger and harder to service, the company uses robotic tools controlled by a winch system. Innovations are continuously introduced by the company to improve the renewable energy industry.

Clobotics Wind Services provides cutting-edge inspection services that deliver flexibility and autonomy, while ensuring full visibility over an entire fleet of wind turbines. Having conducted tens of thousands of blade inspections worldwide, you can be confident in our safe, efficient, and autonomous inspections that keep inspection time to 20 minutes or less. Images of blades are uploaded, analyzed, annotated, and reported on our cloud-based customer portal, Clobotics IRIS™. Using the portal, customers can easily track the entire lifecycle of turbines, see the progression of damage, and custom query the gigabytes of data collected for specific insights to generate prioritized defect repair reports.

WTG Blades

WTG Blades LLC and WTG Offshore have proudly developed our own 1st in class detailed and quality lead reporting system. All our repair stages are live streamed to our back-office engineers enabling full engineering QA/QC control of the repair process at all stages.

WTG Blades LLC take great pride in ensuring our 1st in class service meets with our clients’ objectives and business plans. Following years of developing and training our structural repair teams, we are confident our services provide the highest levels of repair QA/QC and associated repair documentation.

With all repair stages being live streamed to our back-office engineers this enables not only full engineering QA/QC control of the repair process but provides continuous support for our technicians in the field. Client reports are always issued within 24hrs of repair completion and with a market leading 4-year warranty.

WTG Blades will also be show casing our Inventive and market leading repair QA/QC documentation and repair processes, including the Game changing Msquare Silicone post cure heating blankets our teams will be using this year.

Factory quality post curing for in field repairs!!!!

WTG Blades are the only authorised US distributor for this fantastic and much needed improvement in post cure technologies.

At WTG Offshore QUALITY & SAFETY is everything!

WindCom supports customers across multiple continents, providing effective and safe solutions to the most complex blade servicing needs.  Since 2006 blade repairs and inspections have been performed creating the world’s largest database of blade data.  Using the most advanced access equipment technicians blade repairs are enacted using work instructions that are provided for every repair from one of the in house engineering teams. Data is entered into a proprietary eReporting system which serves as a means of quality assurance, finished reports and database.  Work is done safely and right the first time.


WindCom serves not only the major OEMs that produce wind turbines but also the wind farm owners and operators.  With quick response to their needs, down time is minimized and blades can start spinning quicker.

Ping Monitor is the world’s first continuous blade surface condition monitoring system and is being deployed on 600 wind turbines. 

We detect damage earlier and help optimise the blade maintenance thereby reducing costs for wind farm operators. The incredibly simple monitor is located at the base of the wind turbine with magnets, is self-powered and self-communicating, and with installation in less than 1 minute. Ping is particularly suited for detecting new damage from lightning and a range of other damage types. Damage can be trended to see when it should be repaired. With flexible hardware as a service model, you can get monitoring quickly with an operating expense.

All our other sponsors had exhibition stands at the event.
