Sessions | WindEurope Electric City 2021



Offshore wind Onshore wind Technical and Scientific Programme

When: Wednesday, 24 November 2021, 10:30 - 12:30
Where: Auditorium A12

Session description

Blades have become so big that they deserve now their own session! Wind turbine blades are capturing the energy from the wind and transfer it to the wind turbine mechanical drivetrain. Their spectacular size increase and the operation in various types of environments brings many challenges in terms of design, manufacturing, performance, monitoring, maintenance and end-of-life. This session will therefore cover several aspects of the blade lifecycle.
