When wind turbine blades are damaged by lightning strikes or high-speed impacts, the repair process can be costly, tedious, and dangerous for the technicians involved. Working alongside Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, our team developed a robot designed to traverse wind turbine blades and perform precision grinding operations to improve the safety and efficiency of wind turbine blade repair.
