Sulzer Schmid closed an oversubscribed series B funding round in June, according to a press release. The round was led by Swisscanto Invest by Zürcher Kantonalbank. Various venture capitalists were also involved. The amount obtained has not been made public.

Sulzer Schmid has developed a testing platform that can be used to check a large number of wind turbines for damage using drones in a cost effective way. The technology provides high-resolution images that can then be analyzed automatically.
