Title
(EN) A SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A WIND TURBINE BLADE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION D'UNE PALE D'ÉOLIENNE
Abstract
(EN)
A manufacturing method for a wind turbine blade is described which utilises a post- moulding station in the manufacturing process. A blade shell forming part of a wind turbine blade is initially moulded in a blade mould, the blade shell subsequently transferred to a post-moulding station which allows for various post-moulding operations to be carried out on the blade shell away from the mould, thereby increasing the productivity of the blade mould in the manufacturing process. The post-moulding station may be operable to perform the closing of first and second blade shells to form a wind turbine blade, and may be formed from an adjustable structure which can provide relatively easy access to the contained blade shell for working thereon. Accordingly, the manufacturing equipment may be of reduced cost, combined with an increase in the overall productivity of the manufacturing system.

Procédé de fabrication d'une pale d'éolienne utilisant une station de post-moulage dans le processus de fabrication. Une enveloppe de pale faisant partie d'une pale d'éolienne est d'abord moulée dans un moule de pale, l'enveloppe de pale est ensuite transférée à une station de post-moulage qui permet de mettre en œuvre différentes opérations de post-moulage sur l'enveloppe de la pale, et ce à l'écart du moule, ce qui permet d'augmenter la productivité du moule de pale dans le processus de fabrication. La station de post-moulage peut servir à fermer une première et une seconde lame de pale pour former une pale d'éolienne. La station est également conçue à partir d'une structure réglable qui peut fournir un accès relativement facile à l'enveloppe de pale contenue pour travailler sur celle-ci. En conséquence, l'équipement de fabrication peut engendrer une réduction des coûts, combinée à une augmentation de la productivité globale du système de fabrication.
