The world‘s leading manufacturer of wind power turbines, Vestas Wind Systems A/S, with its headquarter in Jutland, Denmark, strongly supports the development of wind power casting technology. The subsidiary Vestas Castings Group AS is the key supplier of castings for their wind power turbines. Compared to welded parts, castings offer much better fatigue properties, which is essential for components with a required minimum lifetime of 20 years. The weight of the castings is a critical factor for the functionality and price of a wind turbine. Therefore, the production of wind turbine castings – weighing from 100 kg up to 15 tons – requires a very high standard of process control and quality.
