During this three-day event, taking place at the Maritime Hotel, wind blade manufacturers, end users, researchers as well as materials and technology suppliers will have the chance to discuss the latest issues from production technology, materials, monitoring and testing for wind turbine blade manufacture.

    With the global expansion of alternative energy markets, wind farms are extending offshore and onshore, leading to increased demand for turbines and blades. The size of the turbines required is also growing, which provides new challenges for blade manufacturers. The Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture Conference 2010 aims to discuss this and more of the industry's latest challenges, from design, materials and composites processing, to qualification and testing of the wind turbine blades. Organized by Applied Market Information Ltd (AMI), a specialist market research and consulting company, the conference is the perfect meeting place for key players in the renewable energy sector worldwide.

    During the three-day conference, SGS will showcase its wide array of Wind Turbine Blade Testing services to the international audience, initially performed at the innovative SGS Wind Energy Technology Center (WETC) in Tianjin, China. The live presentation of static and fatigue tests on rotor blades, conducted by Ullrich Knopf, Global Wind Project Manager at SGS, will be a highlight of the conference.

    SGS Global Competence Center Renewable Energy provides a full-scale Wind Turbine Blade Testing which aimed at extending the lifecycle of wind rotor blades and minimizing the risk of design flaws and manufacturing defects. The SGS Wind Energy Technology Center (WETC) can perform static and fatigue tests for various purposes, including certification testing in accordance with IEC 61400-23, rotor blade design validation, manufacturing quality testing and validation of repairs and design changes.

    With Wind Turbine Blade Testing SGS guarantees that rotor blades meet the site-specific conditions and operate safely and efficiently throughout their intended lifecycle.
