Wind power is the workhorse of the renewable energy industry. Wind turbines are subject to tremendous pressures and near-continuous rotation. Prolonged operational stress reduces the efficiency of wind power generation by warping and shifting component parts over time. As demand for renewable energy sources continues to rise, power station inefficiencies become less tolerable.
Reverse engineering and inspection services speeds up R&D efforts, getting parts from drawing board to wind farm quickly and efficiently. Terrestrial 3D scanning solutions using systems such as the FARO Focus long-range 3D scanner for windmill installation rapidly provides information that translates to fast and seamless construction in the field.
