The tool, developed in cooperation with GL Garrad Hassan and based on its Bladed 4.1 software, is said to ensure faster delivery of load assessments.
“A blade qualification process is an iterative process where the smooth exchange of data between LM Wind Power and the wind turbine manufacturer plays an important role for the overall lead time. We would like to do our part in making this a more efficient process and the LM e-Load tool is a big improvement,” says LM Wind Power’s Chief Technology Officer, Frank V. Nielsen.
In addition to saving time, the LM e-Load represents a step towards increased integration through data exchange based on open standards within the wind industry supply chain, LM Wind Power says.
