(businesspress24) - From December 7th until the 9th, SGS, the world’s leading
inspection, verification, testing and certification company, will
exhibit its Wind Turbine Blade Testing services at the
International Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture Conference 2010
in Düsseldorf. During this three-day event, taking place at the
Maritime Hotel, wind blade manufacturers, end users,
researchers as well as materials and technology suppliers will
have the chance to discuss the latest issues from production
technology, materials, monitoring and testing for wind turbine
blade manufacture.

With the global expansion of alternative energy markets, wind
farms are extending offshore and onshore, leading to increased
demand for turbines and blades. The size of the turbines
required is also growing, which provides new challenges for
blade manufacturers. The Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture
Conference 2010 aims to discuss this and more of the
industry’s latest challenges, from design, materials and
composites processing, to qualification and testing of the wind
turbine blades. Organized by Applied Market Information Ltd
(AMI), a specialist market research and consulting company, the
conference is the perfect meeting place for key players in the
renewable energy sector worldwide.

During the three-day conference, SGS will showcase its wide
array of Wind Turbine Blade Testing services to the international
audience, initially performed at the innovative SGS Wind Energy
Technology Center (WETC) in Tianjin, China. The live
presentation of static and fatigue tests on rotor blades,
conducted by Ullrich Knopf, Global Wind Project Manager at
SGS, will be a highlight of the conference.

SGS Global Competence Center Renewable Energy provides a
full-scale Wind Turbine Blade Testing which aimed at extending
the lifecycle of wind rotor blades and minimizing the risk of

design flaws and manufacturing defects. The SGS Wind Energy
Technology Center (WETC) can perform static and fatigue tests
for various purposes, including certification testing in
accordance with IEC 61400-23, rotor blade design validation,
manufacturing quality testing and validation of repairs and
design changes.

With Wind Turbine Blade Testing SGS guarantees that rotor
blades meet the site-specific conditions and operate safely and
efficiently throughout their intended lifecycle.

Attendees are welcome to discuss any aspect of the various
services offered for the renewable energy sector with SGS
