Currently, SpectX is developing X-ray inspections of hard-to-reach assets possible using multiple synchronized autonomous drones.
The panel discussion on data-driven decision-making in offshore wind operations discussed questions such as how can data be used to improve decision-making, what are the challenges of handling data and what kind of analytical tools are being used. Also, on the agenda is how can disparate data be harmonized and how can operational and maintenance data be combined effectively.
The event focused on highlighting the core benefits of the effective operations and maintenance of offshore wind turbines. The estimated turnout of the event includes 70 delegates and 5 exhibitors and is spread out over 2 days where specialists and industry leaders from all over the world will demonstrate offshore wind technology that can be used for reliable, accessible and cost-effective operations and maintenance to increase safety, revenue, performance and reduce costs.
