Small yet impressive – scaled development environment with hexapods

The Fraunhofer IWES has commissioned a development environment to test mechanical application for research purposes. Improved control concepts and mechanical issues can thus be tested more quickly more cost-effectively and in parallel with productive operation. With this, the IWES is…

Versatile and flexibly employable service: automated optimization of floaters

Compared with conventional offshore wind turbines, “floaters” open up enormous wind energy potential, as they allow development of so many offshore locations in deep waters. The Fraunhofer IWES has been developing a tool for the automated optimization of floating wind…
