Final Report - CONCEPT (Development of a Portable High Energy Nanofocus Computed Tomography system for Glass Reinforced Plastic Wind Turbine Blades)

Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the EU-funded CONCEPT project, which aimed to develop a novel and portable computed tomography system to perform total structural integrity inspection of composite wind turbine blades without taking them out of service. The project resulted in numerous innovations that could be commercially exploited in wind farms and other industries.

The document provides a brief overview of CONCEPT incentives, objectives and principal outcomes. Moreover, each developed instrument is briefly presented and its potential for future exploitation is highlighted. Finally, the report summarises the undertaken dissemination activities, and closes with concerns regarding potential delays in commercialisation due to the global economic downturn.
