The Windaba event will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, on Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 November. During the event, Axel Jacobs will give a presentation in the afternoon between 16:00 and 17:30 on design optimisation with reference to foundations for wind turbines. In addition, ABT will be present at a stand in collaboration with GIBB engineering consultancy. The experts of ABT and Gibb are delighted to welcome you at stand #47 and to discuss how we can help you to optimise your project.
In the year 2015, the average foundations designer is still using designs that are too simple and conservative. Using slimmed down foundations does not only mean that material and costs are saved, but also that CO2 emissions are cut to 40%. Axel will present this in greater depth during his presentation.
Windaba is organised annually by the South African Wind Energy Association (SAWEA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). The theme for 2015 focuses on change in the wind energy field: ‘Powering the wind of change’.
