R&D programme

The main focus of our R&D programme is digitalisation and circularity:

Digitalisation

Machine Learning

Computational Fluid Dynamics

  • "A new process for the pragmatic choice of wind models in complex terrain" (SFOE) - read more here.
  • "Comparison metrics simulation challenge" (SFOE) - read more here.
  • "Evaluation of the Lattice Boltzmann Method for wind modelling in complex terrain" (internal project).
  • "Optimisation of the Skypull Airborne Wind System" (Innosuisse) -  read more here.
  • "Improvement of design tools for Vertical Axis Wind Turbines" (internal project).

Internet of Things

  • "Aerosense: A novel MEMS-based surface pressure and acoustic smart measurement system for wind turbines" (BRIDGE Discovery) - more here.

Microgrids

Circularity

Recycling

Together with IWK at HSR, we are testing new compsite materials for more environmentally-friendly rotor blades. Find out more here.
