UK tech pioneers join forces on a robotic solution for wind sector's 'millions upon millions' of bolts

Two UK innovators have joined forces in a mission to develop a robotic solution for ensuring the integrity of the millions upon millions of bolts that hold wind turbines together, a move that is described as essential to the expansion of offshore wind – and the world’s net-zero future.

The new project announced today by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult brings together the six-legged BladeBUG inspect-and-repair robot for turbine blades and EchoBolt’s ultrasonic bolt inspection device. This collaboration, funded by Innovate UK, will expand BladeBUG’s capabilities, allowing the robot to crawl turbine structures and test bolt integrity using ultrasonics. Leading turbine developer GE Renewable Energy, which plays a supporting role on the new project... ... More: Official Press Release ORE Catapult
