Special Edition Offshore published

This is one of the conclusions reached by the SUN & WIND ENERGY Special Edition Offshore 2011, which has just been published. On 68 pages, this annual special edition of the English language specialist magazine SUN & WIND ENERGY reviews the latest developments in the offshore wind energy industry. It reports on new turbine technologies, the logistical challenges and solutions, cable laying, foundations and pile-driver noise – to name just a few of the themes.

All in all, it has become clear that the maritime and wind power industries must work together more closely with each other. Without the experience of both these participants it will not be possible to realize the offshore wind projects that are currently planned.

The SUN & WIND ENERGY Special Edition Offshore 2011 is available in both German and English free of charge. Please send an e-mail to abo@sunwindenergy.com.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.

More efficient: Pulcap pultruded profiles reinforce the blades of today’s wind turbines (pict. Röchling)

As part of the planned energy transition, increasingly wind power plants are being used to generate electricity. The international plastics processor Röchling Industrial launches a product made of composites, Pulcap, that enhances the stability of the rotor blades of wind turbines. Owing to their extremely high mechanical strength and low weight, the pultruded profiles enable an efficient and safe operation of wind turbines.
