Certification company Bureau Veritas (Paris, France) has signed a cooperation agreement with Cornis (Paris), a provider of wind turbine blade inspections and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, to offer wind farm owners and operators advanced blade inspection (ABI) services based on in-situ data collection and digital processing of images.

ABI uses HD cameras to scan the external surface of a blade, while an automated AI tool recognizes and measures defects on the blade surface using a database of more than 30,000 blades. The type and severity of any defects are presented on a smart web-based platform. With ABI, Bureau Veritas says that clients can benefit from a safer and faster method of blade assessment that leads to more accurate results.

“This partnership draws on Cornis’ unrivaled experience in high-quality technology for blade inspections and Bureau Veritas’ vast global network of experts,” says Stephan Ciniselli, market leader for power and utilities at Bureau Veritas. “By working together, we will be better positioned to support clients across the globe with high-quality blade inspection services, particularly in Europe, in South America, Asia and the Middle East.” 

By working with Cornis, Bureau Veritas says it can further support its clients across the wind sector. Bureau Veritas experts will conduct on-site blade inspections using technologically advanced equipment, while Cornis specialists process data and create complete HD images of each blade.
