EcoSwing at the 9th Meeting Session of the Association of German Engineers (VDI)

Bremen, June 12-13, 2018 - Verein Deutscher Ingenieure (VDI) (English: Association of German Engineers) is an organization with over 150,000 engineers and natural scientists. Established in 1856, the VDI is today the largest engineering association in Western Europe. The association promotes the advancement of technology and represents the interests of engineers and of engineering businesses in Germany.

Certainly, the VDI takes an active role in the wind industry. In a two-days session from June 12 to June 13 three conferences take place under one roof. They will be covering mostly mechanical aspects from blades, over oscillations,to tower and foundations. Since the lowered top-head-mass enabled by superconductors has important benefits in this area, the EcoSwing has been invited to present on status and advancements.

Dr. Jürgen Kellers, ECO 5 GmbH, Bonn, and Dipl.-Ing. Hans Kyling,Fraunhofer IWES, Bremerhaven will deliver a plenary talk on Superconductors as a Cost Cutting Measure for Wind Turbines.
