3D Printing in UAE – World’s largest Offshore Wind Turbine 3D Printed!!
3D Printing in UAE – Additive manufacturing is making headlines for the increasing number of sustainable building and other environment friendly contributions. 3D Printing technology is again in the news as the American giant General Electric (GE) has announced the signing of a partnership with Fraunhofer IGCV and Voxeljet to develop a new 3D printer capable of designing the molds of certain key components of the Haliade-X offshore wind turbine.
The particular wind turbine is notably for its impressive size – 260 meters (~853′) high, with three 107-meter (~351′) long blades, compared to the 381-meter (1250′) height of the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty which is 93 meters (~305′) tall. The project, which is scheduled to begin testing in early 2022, will use 3D printing of sand molds via the Binder Jetting process to cast the components of the wind turbine’s nacelle. This would reduce the development time for these molds from 10 weeks to just two. It will be the world’s first 12 MW wind turbine and expected to power upto 16,000 European houses!!
