Strong decarbonization targets undertaken by many countries has renewed focus on developing cleaner energy supply chain over the world. The past few years have seen a rapid increase in number of wind farms and new wind tower construction projects in and around Asia Pacific. The accelerated pace of wind tower construction needs high throughput and increased workflow productivity during inspection to keep pace with the fabrication. Phased Array Ultrasound Testing (PAUT) and Time of Flight diffraction (ToFD) are the primary inspection methodology for wind tower welds during fabrication as well as In-service. Improving inspection efficiency requires simultaneous development effort on both hardware and software functionalities to reduce inspection bottlenecks.
In this presentation, we will discuss some of the new Olympus offerings from a simple portable solution to inspection with an Autonomous Guided Vehicle (AGV). We will also demonstrate the Weldsight software, which is used across all solutions to provide a comprehensive and streamlined PAUT & ToFD inspection, analysis, and reporting.
