For more than 10 years, AMI’s Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture conference and exhibition have brought together people from throughout the global supply chain, and this year was no different. In light of the current pandemic, this year’s event ran online. This global virtual summit was held over four days, and covered the latest technical developments and market trends in the wind turbine blade sector.
Topics included recent research and new solutions in bonding, core kitting and processing, surface protection, blade testing or lightning protection. The wind turbine blades industry is not an exception to the global growing awareness around sustainability, which has driven OEMs to set ambitious sustainability targets. Carbon footprint and blade recycling was covered by key players in the industry.
Asta Sakalyte from AEROX ADVANCED POLYMERS and Stephen Nolet from TPI Composites, Inc. presented their work “Towards cost-effective industrial deployment of self-heating adhesives for wind turbines blades”. A promising technology for the next generation of bonding materials for wind turbine blade
