JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Suzlon Blade Technology and Idé-Pro Engineering & Software A/S announced on December 10, 2010 that they signed a 3 year contract, during which Idé-Pro will deliver a complete integrated solution for the design of future Wind Turbine Blades to Suzlon worldwide.
The solution is based on the newest V6 technology from Dassault Systèmes, with Catia V6, Catia V6 Composites, and Enovia V6 as the main part of the solution together with extensive services to ensure a successful implementation worldwide. During 2010 Suzlon Blade Technology extensively benchmarked the V6 portfolio against competitive solutions on the market. Aspects such as full process coverage, international collaboration, single user interface, knowledge about and focus on the Wind Turbine industry, trustworthy implementation plan and local support have been key fac tors in Suzlon Blade Technology’s choice for a total solution based on Catia V6 and Enovia V6.
“Our goal has been to set new standards for future development of Wind Turbine Blades by establishing a digital thread covering our total process”, says Flemming Mortensen, Senior Project Manager at Suzlon. “We need to define a process from initial airfoil design through structural design and analysis to production and enable our locations in Denmark, The Netherlands and India to work seamlessly together in order to be prepared for the expected massive growth within our industry. We will need to embrace many of the same development processes that are successfully used in the aerospace industry. Not only shall we focus on having the best tools for advanced design of large composite structures, we must also focus on having a solution that will allow for many design iterations and still getting the right data out to our worldwide production facilities – and all the time with a focus on getting our products on the market within the given timeframe”.
