The 8th annual international AMI conference on Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture took place from the 12-14 December 2017 at the Maritim Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany. The event began with an evening Networking Cocktail Reception and exhibition on the 12 December for all delegates and speakers followed by a 2-day focused technical programme.

AMI’s Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture 2017 conference examined the manufacturing and performance of wind blade composites for large windmills. There are challenges to be overcome in production such as bringing in cost-effective automation and speeding up manufacturing, as well as developing inspection technologies for quality control both in the factory and at the installation site of the turbine.

AMI’s Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture 2017 conference brought together wind energy farmers, wind turbine producers, blade manufacturers, design engineers, composites manufacturing experts, researchers, developers, service engineers, materials and equipment suppliers, to discuss the technology and economics of producing reliable year-round wind energy, focusing on the key component, the rotor.
