Developement for low-cost 60 m diameter carbon fibre technology rotor for the 1 Mw turbine TACKE WINDTECHNICK "TW 1000"

Exploitable results

The realisation of larger wind turbines demands new materials and constructiontechniques. This project aimed to demonstrate the use of carbon fibre, as analternative to conventional GRP/GRE (glass reinforced polyester/glass reinforcedepoxy), for the cost-effective production of a high performance turbine rotor. Aprototype rotor was planned for the 1 MW machine TW1000, manufactured by TackeWindtechnik.
