10:00-13:00  WORKSHOP: How turbine design may reduce ice fall risks for personnel, John M. Gitmark, Kjeller Vindteknikk/Norconsult – Many of us are familiar with the risk of ice throw and ice fall from turbines in cold climate, and it is especially critical for personnel working in the wind farms. In a current research project, Kjeller Vindteknikk (Norconsult), together with partners, are looking into design solutions to reduce the risk.
Your input is very valuable, and we are therefore arranging an interesting workshop. By attending, you will gain unique insight into the challenges and needs in the industry, as well as being a part of shaping future solutions!

14:00-17:00  Performance envelopes of blade heating systems – A subtask of IEA Wind TCP Task 54 “Cold climate wind power”, Claas Rittinghaus, Energiewerkstatt –  The selection of a suitable blade heating system with respect to site-specific meteorological conditions as well as the technical validation of the system’s performance during commissioning of a turbine are examples that can decrease unexpected losses and thereby increase the overall profitability of a project. The same goes for accurate power forecasting incorporating blade heating system performance as another example along the project lifecycle that can at the same time also create a positive effect on electricity grid stability, the volatility of the electricity market in general and the balancing power market in particular.
