Ørsted has launched a trial involving drones which will carry spare parts and tools to offshore wind farms with the aim of finding more sustainable solutions and minimizing downtime for wind turbines. Moreover, this is to lessen the need for deploying ships when turbines are in need of repair and maintenance, writes Ørsted in a press release.

”At Ørsted, we’re constantly exploring new opportunities to minimize downtime for wind turbines and increase renewable power production. Together with DSV, Ørsted has launched an initiative to bring the spare parts warehouse closer to the service technicians, thereby ensuring that the wind turbines get back online more quickly,” says Head of Operations Digital & Innovation at Ørsted Klaus Baggesen Hilger.
