Gamesa has opened a technology centre in Singapore to focus on advanced materials research. The new laboratory begins its work with three important research projects, conducted jointly with the Nanyang Technological University, the National University of Singapore and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).

Gamesa expects the tech lab to employ more than 30 engineers by 2014. The partnership agreement with the Nanyang Technological University enables Gamesa to conduct research projects on wind turbine blade coatings and methods for incorporating the materials into the company’s manufacturing systems. Along with the National University of Singapore, the company will study methods for monitoring composite materials using embedded sensors and will assess their industrial applications. Meanwhile, in conjunction with the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), a research institute of A*STAR, Gamesa will gauge the performance of turbine blades’ carbon fibre polymers after nano-reinforcements are incorporated to lend them added strength. Gamesa will explore R&D in manufacturing with the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), a research institute of A*STAR.
