European cooperation on turbine wings

European cooperation on turbine wings

A major international research collaboration between 10 European partners has gained EUR 4 million to develop seven new wind turbine technology technologies, which can lower the overall energy cost of offshore wind energy by up to 4,7 percent.

"There is great reason to be proud of being part of projects like this. Denmark is in front when it comes to wind energy research. Research benefits both the green conversion and the Danish wind turbine industry,"says Anders Søe-Jensen, CEO of Bladena and former CEO of Vestas Offshore and GE Offshore.

The two-year Demowind funded project is coordinated by the UK's ORE Catapult Development Services Ltd (ODSL) and involves leading organizations within wind turbine innovation including CENER, Bladena, TNO, Aerox, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Total Wind, Dansk IngeniørService A/S (DIS) Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Cardenal Herrera University (CEU) in Spain.

Operating and maintenance costs represent almost a quarter of the total LCOE on an offshore wind turbine, where rotor maintenance including wing erosion and wing structure represent a large part of these costs. Therefore, improving the performance and operating time of the wings will have a direct impact on the costs.

The Danish part of the project is supported by the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP), which belongs to the Danish Energy Agency.
