Award List:

Spiral Welded Wind Turbine Towers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Eric Smith, Mr. – 857-225-0552
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Large-scale wind turbine designs are significantly constrained by transportation limits. As utility scale wind turbines have developed, they have steadily increased in size and have seen a steady decrease in cost of energy. However, further increases in on-shore turbine size beyond 3MW are… More

Development of On-Site Conical Spiral Welders for Large Turbine Towers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Eric S Smith, Mr. – 857-225-0552
Award Amount: $996,770.00
As commercial wind turbine technology has matured, designers have steadily increased turbine and tower sizes in an effort to drive down the cost of energy. Today, that effort has stalled because wind system components are limited by the sizes allowed by transportation. Industry-dominant tubular… More

SBIR Phase I: Optimization of tapered spiral welding for wind turbine towers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Eric D. Smith
Award Amount: $149,261.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses two roadblocks to reducing the cost of wind energy: the labor-intensive construction process, and size limitations imposed by road or rail transport for turbine components. The former issue drives up manufacturing costs and… More
