OptiWind is an IWT SBO project. SBO projects are research projects of high scientific value, but with industrial opportunities in the (near) future (5 to 10 years). Industry representatives (e.g. Belwind, CG, Nexans, DEME, …) are involved through an Industrial Advisory Board. In OptiWind we are looking at large offshore wind turbines (i.e. towards 20 MW), together with the OWI-Lab partners. Within OptiWind SET is responsible for two work packages: one on blades and one on grid connections.
