The event starts with an exhibition followed by a 2-day technical programme. It brings together energy companies, wind turbine producers, blade manufacturers, design engineers, composites manufacturing experts, researchers, developers, materials and equipment suppliers. The overall aim is to improve energy output performance and cut production costs, so that the wind energy industry improves its reliability and competitiveness in the marketplace.

New coatings with improved erosion resistance

There are new materials under review from resins to coatings. The latter are being developed to combat erosion, which can be caused by the higher speeds of larger offshore blades and by the impact of rain and hail. Companies such as BASF Coatings and Atlas Material Testing Technology present new coatings concepts with improved erosion resistance for wind turbine rotor blades and state-of-the-art solutions for weathering testing of rotor blade coatings.
