Companies in the wind turbine business have identified ways to reduce cost and the results are now presented as they may prove beneficial to other industries.

The Danish Wind Industry Association (DWIA) has facilitated a standardisation project supported by The Danish Industry Foundation where wind energy companies have found areas they can agree to standardise – to reduce cost.

Companies working with processing of steel for wind turbine towers and monopiles have identified surface treatment of towers and processing of welds on towers and monopiles as collaboration subjects.

The results will be presented at this workshop where the aim is to spread the attained knowledge out to relevant sectors. Furthermore, we seek to gather relevant knowledge from these sectors, that can complement both new and existing knowledge in the wind industry.

The workshop is divided into two different but coherent parts where it will be possible to participate in both the morning and afternoon session, or just one of them.
