TKI Wind op Zee project C-Tower approved

May 27th 2015

The "TKI Wind op Zee" project C-Tower "Design and Prototype of Compostie Tower for Offshore Wind Turbines" have been granted by RVO. The project will commence October 1, 2015 and will have a duration of two years.

The present project aims to demonstrate feasibility of replacing the steel tower by a fibre reinforced composite structure, with the aim of reducing maintance and thereby the life cycle cost of the entire wind turbine. Production costs will be reduced by using automated production techniques.
