Brussels Wind Energy Institute (Bruwind)

In the Brussels Wind Energy Institute ‘Bruwind’ several research groups join their technologies to boost innovation in wind energy from small wind turbines in urban environments to large offshore wind farms. Reducing its cost by improving the design of wind turbines and optimizing their operation and maintenance is the main challenge. Bruwind’s key expertise is structural health monitoring, including corrosion management, dynamic monitoring, sensor technologies and materials.

Bruwind’s expertise is made available for the Flemish Offshore Wind Energy Industry through the Offshore Wind Infrastructure Lab. In the OWI-lab research groups AVRG and SURF developed a state-of-the art structural health monitoring system at the offshore wind farm Belwind.
