At stake is entrepreneurship, research, innovation and "blue investment" to drive sustainable technologies and emerging value chains across the sea economy. THE ISQ will present a prototype inspection of welds of wind towers during manufacture – Phasewind – an ISQ technological development of an integrated system for non-destructive welding inspection and control. This development of ISQ in addition to increasing productivity in the inspection of wind turbine towers during manufacturing ensures a higher quality of inspection, while helping to eliminate human error during the inspection and defect-instatement decision. An innovative inspection and monitoring solution that combines different non-destructive and visual testing techniques to perform high-speed and automatic inspections of wind turbine tower welding. This fully automatic inspection system does not require human intervention during its operation because it can scan and analyze the weld bead through a high-resolution camera and advanced ultrasonic techniques that analyze 100% of the volume of welds automatically, thus detecting defects, without the presence of operators. The event takes place on May 16 and 17, 2019, at the Lisbon Congress Centre. DSCN3662
