The research project by EnBW and DLR explores the use of logistics and passenger drones to service offshore wind farms: flying people and material out to sea.

Offshore wind energy is essential to the German Energiewende and sustainable energy supply, with offshore wind turbines making a major contribution to the security of our electricity supply. However, their location far from the coast also means long journeys for the maintenance teams, restricting a very valuable asset of every service technician: the effective time working on a wind turbine.
