Field-Assembled Component-Based Rotor Blades

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Kyle Wetzel, Dr.
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Wetzel Engineering, Inc., proposes research and development to engineer very large wind turbine rotor blades for land-based machines that avoid expensive and logistically challenging transportation requirements. The proposed solution combines two technologies: Sectional component-based assembly of… More

Late Award - Field-Assembled Component-Based Rotor Blades

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Kyle Wetzel, Dr.
Award Amount: $1,000,000.00
Abstract:
The utility-scale wind industry is evolving towards very large ( & gt;4MW) machines with blades longer than 70m for both land-based and off-shore installations. There is a rapid ramp in cost associated with ground transportation of blades longer than 65m, rising to a threshold that is… More
