Iberdrola, leader in renewable energy, invites startups to participate in its Autonomous Offshore Inspections Startup Challenge. Iberdrola seeks fully autonomous or remotely piloted unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that will optimize the inspection of Iberdrola’s offshore assets, focusing in particular on, but not limited to, detection of anomalies and faults in wind turbine blades and foundations.

Iberdrola is well positioned as a global leader in the offshore wind market. Offshore wind power has become a key growth driver for Iberdrola with its current 1.26 GW offshore wind power and a further 9.6 GW pipeline, both under development and under construction, expected to be commissioned in 2027.

Does your solution optimize autonomous offshore inspections for wind energy assets?

Offshore environments can be harsh with extreme weather conditions. Iberdrola is looking for UAV solutions that can withstand these conditions and also optimize maintenance inspections, save costs and time and make it safer for its employees. Iberdrola is looking for solutions for this challenge, among other things:

  • Fully autonomous self-driving or remotely operated vehicles (FASDVs or ROVs).
  • Beyond Visual Line of Site (BVLOS) technology.
  • Inspection systems for wind turbine components including blades and foundations.
  • Minimal or zero downtime for wind turbines.
  • Image/video recording and condition scan with subsequent data analysis.
  • Full inspection packages including 3D modeling and digital twin solutions.
  • Preventive maintenance and on-site repair if necessary.
  • Solutions for both above and underwater inspections.

However, if your proposal does not fit this challenge, it will also be analyzed, provided that the competitive advantages of the proposal for a specific type of site are clearly explained.

Discover the benefits of working with Iberdrola

In addition to earning its position as one of the top wind power operators worldwide for over 20 years, Iberdrola is well-experienced working with startups advancing emerging technologies. In the past two years, Iberdrola has launched more than 19 Global Startup Challenges to solve various problems in today’s energy industry. Your benefits include:

  • Collaboration Agreement & Pilot Test: The winner will have the opportunity to collaborate and sign test agreements with PERSEO or another company of the Iberdrola group. The group will support the costs of the pilot activities.
  • Access-all-areas: Iberdrola will provide the winner with all necessary technical support, as well as a site and real data to test the solution. This includes access to equipment, teams, infrastructure, high-tech locations and shared work areas.
  • Scale your technology: If the pilot test is satisfactory, Iberdrola can offer the winner the opportunity to scale up the solution by customizing it through commercial agreements.
  • Potential investment: In addition, PERSEO is considering investing in the participating company and/or the winner of the challenge.

  • Investment and operational costs
  • Required working hours
  • Easy implementation, use and maintenance
