Fraunhofer IWES scientists welcomed and guided guests from politics research and industry through the new test rig courtesy Hauke Mueller FotografieFraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems IWES has inaugurated its new 115-meter-plus rotor blade test rig. The new rotor blade test rig offers testing possibilities for rotor blades measuring longer than 115 metres.
In addition to biaxial, full-scale blade tests, manufacturers also have the option of testing individual segments of a rotor blade. The construction of the test rig was financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) to the tune of around €18 million, with additional funding of around €5 million coming from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the State of Bremen, and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
