The 3rd international conference “Advances in Rotor Blades for Wind Turbines” was held in Bremen at the end of last month.
Rotor blades are decisive in the race for lower cost of energy, and although much progress has been seen in structural design and manufacturing over the past few years, there is still plenty of room for innovation.
Therefore, international leaders in the rotor blade industry gather in Bremen yearly to share and discuss the latest trends and innovations in this field. This year’s conference focused on “Efficient ways to optimise the CoE throughout the blade lifecycle”.
After he himself acted as a speaker last year, Pontis Engineer Edgar Suselbeek attended the conference as well as a workshop Structural Design Rotor blades this time. He says: “If you want to stay at the leading edge of the development of next generation rotor blades, you cannot afford to miss this event. Bremen is increasingly becoming the place to meet the leading parties and to learn about the latest trends especially in XL rotor blade development.”
