Today the wind power industry is the major purchaser of resin systems and fibre reinforcements in the area of fibre composites. With measurements of more than 80m in length and several tons of material input, the biggest components, in the form of rotor blades for wind turbines, are being built in fibre composites.

The rotor blade manufacturers have significantly contributed to the perfection of the vacuum infusion system and its transformation to an industrial process.

Nevertheless, this process has to be optimized even further, to reduce the cycle times of the rotor blade production and to cover the increasing demand.

The leading manufacturers in this sector are situated in Germany and Denmark.
