In the innovation project Requim, several partners are developing a new technology that can improve erosion testing of the leading edges of wind turbine blades. The product improves both the quality of testing and the testing speed.
DTU Wind and Energy Systems participates together with partners from the companies Wind Power Lab and R&D Test Systems in the innovation project where they jointly optimise rain testing of blades with artificial intelligence. Wind Power Lab’s role in the project is to develop software that can accurately tell when erosion begins to occur when testing new products for the wind and aerospace industries. R&D is a so-called problem owner in the project, as the company develops and sells rain erosion test machines. Requim lasts a year and initially develops proof of concept. Then the partners want to apply for funding for further development of the final product.
