The research project “Automated repair of rain erosion damage by micro-3D printing” got a positive advice for the full proposal stage of the KIC – Innovations for wind and solar energy call. This project, in which M2i collaborates with University of Twente, University of Groningen and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences University of Groningen, aims to extend the life time of wind turbine blades. Our goal is to extend the rotor blade’s lifetime by more frequent maintenance while keeping the cost down using automised remote monitoring and repair technologies. The deadline of the full proposal is early September.
