The “HighRe” project (aerodynamics with high Reynolds numbers for the large offshore wind turbines of the future) conducts complex measurements of the wind field and the aerodynamic reaction of the wind turbine in the near future.

Official Press Release Fraunhofer IWES:

Worldwide First Validation of Aerodynamics of Large Wind Turbines

Wind Industry Profile of
Worldwide First Validation of Aerodynamics of Large Wind Turbines

For the very first time in the world, Fraunhofer IWES is measuring the aerodynamics of wind turbines with a rated power of more than five megawatts (MW).

The aerodynamic properties of the AD 8 wind turbine, with rated power of 8 MW and rotor diameter of 180 m, are being measured at the site in Bremerhaven and compared against complex models in the scope of the “HighRe” research and development project. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) with a budget of € 4 million. This way it shall be assessed whether the model calculations used to date are also valid for large wind turbines, which will primarily be built offshore in the future. The “HighRe” project (aerodynamics with high Reynolds... ... More: Official Press Release Fraunhofer IWES
