DID YOU KNOW?

Sabre wind turbine blade inspection system

reduces your blade O&M costs by up to ~25%. Sabre is a one stop inspection solution that is applicable for your entire fleet—regardless of wind turbine model or manufacturer and can be completed with your blades still rotating, which maintains output and saves you money and increases the wind turbine’s lifecycle. The SABRE camera system is mounted to the bed of a truck and taken to the base of your wind turbine. The camera system takes images of your turbine blades, with the turbine still running, that provide real-time view of the subsurface of the blade. SABRE, when combined with GE’s digital capabilities, provides advanced imaging.
