Meeting

Meetings & Events  


The project partners must hold transnational project meetings during the research project and present the results at the end of the project at various events.

Transnational project meetings

The transnational project meetings (TPM) are held in the countries and locations of the various project partners.

4th TPM, April 6, 2021, Bilbao 

Our fourth transnational project meeting took place on April 6th at the Wind Europe fair in Bilbao. After the Corona Pandemic, our project partner UTEC from Uruguay was also able to attend the meeting in person.
More than two thirds of the project duration have now passed and the development of the individual modules is nearly completed. We discussed the final details of each module during the project meeting. In addition, preparations have been made for further pilot tests so that they can be carried out in May and June 2022. The WExSiM module, which has already been completed, has already been extensively tested by the project partners with the help of the VR glasses. As in every meeting, the administrative matters were also discussed and prompt processing was requested.
Overall, we are very satisfied with the progress of our project and are pleased to be able to present the results to the public.

3rd TPM, October 7 and 8, 2021, Cyprus 

TPM Cyprus

After revoking the travel restrictions due to the corona pandemic, we were finally able to carry out our third TPM in attendance again. Therefore we met on October 7th and 8th in Cyprus at the University of Cyprus in Nicosia. However, since not all project partners were able to travel to Cyprus, these partners were put online.
The meeting highlighted the progress of the project. Our developed Moodle platform, which is supposed to combine all developed training content, has already been completed. The first 3D videos of wind turbines from our WP3 have been completed and the SIMULWIND simulation has also been further developed. The first training scenarios have also been completed and were tested in Cyprus by the partners. A first MATLAB simulation from WP4 has been completed, with the help of which a wind turbine can be designed. The program can be run as an independent program. Extensive documents on the topics of preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance were created in WP5. In addition, the first questionnaires have been created on the Moodle platform, which can be answered after studying the documents. Extensive fault trees have been created in WP6, which represent every possible development of damage in wind turbine gearboxes. The next step here is to create corresponding learning programs.
Furthermore, all administrative matters were discussed and asked for constant cooperation, even on these not-so-exciting topics.
Overall, we, as the project consortium, can be satisfied with the progress. This has also been confirmed to us in the mid-term report.

2nd 2nd TPM, February 2 and 3, 2021, online

Since it is still not possible to hold a transnational meeting in person due to the corona pandemic, we as a project team held a two-day online meeting, which, according to the funding application, should be considered a transnational meeting.
In terms of content, in addition to organizational matters, the main focus was on building the training structure and selecting the tools to be used.

1st 2nd TPM, June 30, 2020, online

At the first TPM in Madrid, the second TPM was set on June 30th, 2020. However, the current developments in the corona pandemic did not stop at our research project, so the meeting could not take place at the TU Delft. As a project team, we decided to hold this meeting as an online meeting.
In terms of content, the next steps in work packages 2 to 6 were discussed. In addition, as in every meeting, organizational issues were also discussed, in order to ensure that the project runs smoothly. 

1st TPM, January 15, 2020, Madrid 

TPM



The first TPM took place at the headquarter of project leader Asociation Empresarial Eolica (AEE) in Madrid.  The meeting focused on the presentation of the project and the partners, the project management, communication and dissemination activities as well as a first discussion on the intended output of the project. Due to the fact, that the consortium consists out of 11 partners, the meeting was also used to get a common understanding about the goals of the project.  



Events

The events aim to publish and disseminate the project results to a broad public. The events take place in the project partner countries and will be announced here towards the end of the project.

Pilot test in Pamplona 

The first Pilot Test has been carried out in Pamplona at the TESICNOR center.
The students of the National Reference Center for Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency (CENIFER) have been testing WExSiM, the Virtual Reality simulator of WindEXT.
CENIFER students have dedicated two sessions to identify improvements in experiences that recreate the work activity of the wind sector. The feedback received was very satisfactory. "It's very real, really," admits Diego Salinas, a second-year student in the Higher Degree in Renewable Energies who has worked for four years in wind farms. His partner, Verónica Aceña, agrees that through virtual reality "you can see very clearly the work you have to do and the risks you may have”.

Wind Europe Bilbao 2022 

WindEXT was present at the WindEurope Annual Event that took place in Bilbao from April 5 to 7, 2022. All those attending the fair could try WExSiM, the virtual simulator, at the AEE stand. In addition, on April 6, the entire windext consortium was at the stand to present the project and answer questions from the attendees.
