DSM introduced a new blade scheme
DSM provides a new solution for fan blade manufacturing. DSM, the global leader in composite resin industry, officially launched a set of research results based on overall solutions for the global wind turbine blade manufacturing industry at the "2010 China Wind Energy Conference" (Beijing, October 13-15). The core goal of DSM's latest research is to promote the production of fan blades from traditional epoxy resin to unsaturated polyester resin based on the purpose of bringing higher economic benefits and long-term development potential to the entire wind energy industry. According to DSM's research, the use of unsaturated polyester resin can significantly shorten the production cycle and reduce energy consumption in the whole production process of fan blades. In addition, the trend of wind energy industry is increasingly manifested in the requirement of larger blade size, high structural strength, low weight, good power generation performance and long-term durability, which itself requires better material solutions. The performance of unsaturated polyester resin can fully meet these requirements, and it has been proved that it can be used to produce fan blades of 3.5 MW or more than 45 meters. Based on the expectation that the power of fan blades will reach MW in the future, unsaturated polyester resin is becoming the material choice for producing large blades. The complete solution includes consulting services and technical support for blade manufacturers, covering the entire 180 degree stripping production process of fan blades - from resin selection to mold, from blade design to production technology, and so on
DSM can also provide customers with suggestions on the types of reinforcement materials, adhesives, gel coats, coating systems and other materials, which can help blade manufacturers optimize production and save about 40% of the system cost. Therefore, the production of fan blades will have more flexibility, higher blade strength, and the production mode will be more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Wind energy needs to be more competitive in cost and performance than traditional energy and other types of clean energy. Through more reasonable blade design, using high-performance unsaturated polyester resin, through simplifying and efficient processes, to make solid and reliable fan blades can help improve the competitiveness of wind energy. Therefore, blade designers and manufacturers need to be able to easily obtain high-quality materials and professional knowledge about operation. Just as DSM's research results based on overall solutions have brought professional technology of the entire value chain to the development of the fan blade market. DSM's new solution also includes the design of unsaturated polyester resin blades and molds with global blade technology, a key partner selected. "DSM's deep understanding of the industry and its ability to use expertise to develop new products for customers are impressive," said Jan Willem van der werff, CEO of global blade technology, "We also believe that our knowledge and experience in blade design and manufacturing technology can design high-performance unsaturated polyester resin blades. The cooperation with DSM in comprehensively accelerating the cooperation of chitin fiber, seaweed fiber, hemp pulp fiber and polylactic acid fiber enables us to provide all-round services for blade customers.
" this cooperation is an important part of our strategy to develop the fan blade market. " Michael effing, President of DSM composite resin, said, "I believe that combined with the experience and expertise of global blade technology, we will be able to bring unique overall services to the fan blade industry." Customers only need a contact person to know a lot of material knowledge and professional skills, a complete product portfolio of unsaturated polyester resin, and a complete set of consulting services including aerodynamics, blade structure design, mold design and processing. It is called universal and is fully supported in the process of blade certification, production startup and so on. "This latest solution will bring fundamental changes to the market," Mr. effing said. "We rely on a lot of knowledge and support capabilities, and work closely with leading partners in the industry to provide complete unsaturated polyester resin solutions. This initiative reflects our commitment to the global fan blade industry. DSM will continue to contribute to sustainable energy production through material innovation." Mr. effing further said, "DSM composite resin will continue to regard China as an important strategic market, and we will be committed to improving our ability to support Chinese customers." He said, "in 2009, the global wind power market increased by 31%, while the installed capacity in China increased by as much as 100%. We are confident that with our brand-new solutions, rich resources in marketing, sales and production, as well as the R & D in Shanghai and the strength of Nanjing Technology center, we will further improve the market share and bring greater value to blade manufacturers."
global blade technology (GBT), an engineering company focusing on the design, mold and manufacturing of fan blades, is engaged in basic process, material research, mold production to blade production system, etc. GBT has a stronger super coloring power, and has accumulated more than 50 years of professional technology in blades. In 2009, it established a company in the Netherlands, headquartered in wieringerwerf, and has operating agencies in Vadodara, India, and Cincinnati, Ohio, the United States. DSM composite resin belongs to DSM resin group, which is one of the key business areas of DSM performance materials science. It is also the largest structural resin manufacturer in Europe and the technical leader in the resin field of composite materials industry. The company has actively expanded its business worldwide, especially in China, aiming at high-end industrial sectors. DSM serves customers through a professional technical service center, DSM center of excellence, and has a reinforced plastic distributor in Europe, euroresins. DSM is also the global market leader in wetting agents and adhesives, and these products are crucial functional and performance components in the production of glass fiber reinforced materials. This makes DSM a world leader in the whole composite value chain. Royal DSM group is a professional company in life science and material science. DSM serves the end markets of human and animal nutrition and health care, personal care, pharmaceutical, automotive, coatings and paints, electronic and electrical, life protection and construction
