Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with Magnum Venus Products and IACMI–The Composites Institute, are organising Advances in Wind Energy, a two-day workshop exploring advanced materials, manufacturing processes and repair techniques for wind energy applications.

Featuring hands-on demos and presentations led by leading wind energy professionals, the event will be held 5-6 June at the National Wind Technology Centre in Boulder, Colorado, US.

This is the third year in a row that Composites One and IACMI are co-presenting a workshop geared to professionals in the wind industry.

“Of the live demos and educational workshops that we’ve presented the past few years, those focused on the wind industry have consistently drawn large crowds,” says Composites One Director of Marketing Communications, Marcy Offner. “Each session has been totally different, enabling us to cover a wide variety of topics pertinent to the rapidly growing wind energy workforce.”

At Advances in Wind Energy, attendees will:

  • See LIVE demos of Light RTM for building a nacelle and the vacuum infusion process;
  • Hear about the market drivers affecting the industry;
  • Find out about the latest advancements in tapes, coatings and high-temperature tooling;
  • Learn how to select core materials for blade laminates;
  • Get an overview of thermoplastics tooling, processing and manufacturing automation;
  • Explore damage repair techniques for composite structures, and more.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the National Wind Technology Centre, the leading US wind energy technology facility. Located at the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills, it occupies a 305-acre site that experiences diverse wind patterns occasionally exceeding 100 miles an hour, making it ideal for testing the reliability and performance of wind turbines.

Hands-on demos and presentations at Advances in Wind Energy will be led by subject matter experts from Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, a resource dedicated to helping manufacturers make a successful conversion to closed mould and other advanced processes, and IACMI. Along with Composites One, the Closed Mold Alliance founding members include Magnum Venus Products and RTM North.

Also, on-hand to lead sessions and answer attendee questions will be suppliers adept in wind energy materials and processes. They include 3A, 3M, Abaris, Airtech Advanced Materials Group, Chem-Trend, Chomarat, Mankiewicz, Olympus, Oribi, Polynt Composites USA, PRO-SET, SikaAxson and Vectorply.
