Shaping the structures of tomorrow to prevent failures and improve efficiency on wind turbine blades

At Fibersail, we developed a unique shape sensing system capable of measuring the shape and behavior of wind turbine blades, in real time during rotation, in order to prevent failures, improve efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. With 3 years of research with a University, a patent pending, and after successfully proving the concept at a small scale model, we are now developing a full scale model to be tested by a blade manufacturer with 3D measurements. Currently we are a team of 4 with expertise in business development, structural engineering, fiber optic sensors, software development and cloud computing, all with a common purpose: to turn existing critical structures into smart structures that will prevent failures and improve efficiency automatically in the future and that will disrupt the way condition monitoring and structural health is being done today on composites.
