GE Renewable Energy, LM Wind Power, and GE Research in Partnership to Leverage Knowledge of Advanced Composite Processing August 02 (2021

(2021 Composites Market Update 31

GE Renewable Energy, LM Wind Power, and GE Research in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) launched the “Automated Blade Finishing” program in 2020, aiming to improve throughput, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), and quality in wind turbine blade manufacturing.

Blade finishing includes trimming excess material after molding and grinding blade surface to meet quality requirements.

The program’s vision is to leverage knowledge of advanced composite processing together with sensing, robotics and automation to develop low-cost solutions for wind blade finishing with potential to increase throughput by 30% and improve EHS in factories.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the team moved rapidly from concept to prototype boosted by the capabilities offered at NREL’s Composites Manufacturing Education and Technology (CoMET) facilities to perform quick proof of concept trials on blade sections.
