Funding scheme:CP - Collaborative project (generic)
The objective of the WINDTRUST project is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of innovative and more reliable solutions for multi MW wind turbines in order to improve the competitiveness of wind energy technologies. The selected components of the wind turbine are the rotor (specifically the blade), power electronics (specifically the converter) and Control and communication system (specifically the controller system).
The project will demonstrate the reliability of the proposed solution on an onshore 2MW prototype turbine and will also extrapolate conclusion to larger wind turbine and off-shore locations.
To reach such objectives, the project will join a 9 partnership European consortium, led by key industrial stakeholders of the wind turbine industry, GAMESA, LM and SEMIKRON, in cooperation with a group of R&D centres and SMEs with complementary skills and expertise to support design, testing and dissemination activities. The project partners are strongly committed to work together and to include all the necessary resources to deal with the scheduled project work plan.
