As the need for renewable energy increases, the demand for onshore and offshore wind energy generation facilities continues to grow. The UK is a global leader in power generation from offshore wind and this accolade owes its success to the materials and technology used in the construction of these complex installations. Structural integrity is vital in remote locations, be they off our coast or on our moors, and materials engineers are playing a vital role in ensuring that the turbines and associated infrastructure operate without a hitch for prolonged periods.
This new, one-day course that we are running in collaboration with FESI, explores the critical structural integrity challenges that must be considered when planning a new facility.
This course course will cover the following aspects:
- The importance of wind energy for the UK's energy mix
- Machine loading in wind turbines
- Structural design considerations for power generation from wind
- Regulatory requirements and assessment methodologies
- Future trends
- Case studies
Register to attend this one-day course on Wednesday 29 June 2022 at The Boilerhouse in Grantham, UK
