Hexcel and Insensys in Cooperation and Development Agreement

30 September 2003

Hexcel has entered into a Cooperation and Development Agreement with Insensys, a major player in optical fibre sensing, for Insensys to supply equipment to monitor the performance and structural health of wind turbine blades.

This Agreement will enable both companies to bring innovative technology to market based upon established optical fibre sensing technology. Next generation composites utilizing this technology provide cost savings to customers through design verification and in-service monitoring of parameters including structural health, strain, damage, temperature, crack propagation, shape and applied loads throughout service lifetime.
