Growth through Research, development & demonstration in Offshore Wind

Millions of collisions at 300 km/h - Ouch!

Listen to the fourth edition of GROW-to-GO with Harald van der Mijle Meijer (TNO), and Julie Teuwen (TU Delft).

Rotor blades are made of strong materials that look indestructible, yet they get damaged by water and that costs a lot of money. Harald van der Mijle Meijer (TNO), and Julie Teuwen (TU Delft), put on their rainboots to research how rain impacts the wind turbines’ rotor blades. The goal? To get more insight into how the damage of blades evolves and even better: how to prevent it.
