The use of composite materials in the energy and utilities industry is growing, especially in the renewable energy sector where market demand and efforts to reduce total lifecycle costs are intense. Global competition and volatility of the energy market leave manufacturers and suppliers grappling with how to decrease engineering cycle times and reduce production costs while increasing performance.
Wind turbines, for example, are becoming bigger for added efficiency, which forces manufacturers to adopt new blade designs and use advanced materials and processes that meet design requirements. This adds risk and compounds the already complex challenge of building large composite blades less expensively while improving performance, reliability and quality.
The promise of mass reductions, performance improvements and material and assembly cost reductions can all seem enticing, but the nature of fibre-reinforced plastic products requires rapid changes in the way analysis, design and manufacturing are traditionally performed. Despite the increase in the use of composite materials today, effectively designing, analyzing and manufacturing composite products that satisfy customers’ needs remains a challenge.
