Promoting the Center for Wind Energy and Maritime Engineering (CWMT)

The Center for Wind Energy and Maritime Engineering (CWMT) is aiming to further expand the State of Bremen and Bremerhaven in particular as a German centre of excellence for rotor blades and maritime technology. The core focus of the CWMT is to be on research, development and testing of rotor blades. The work is to include the use of computer simulation and experimental processes on materials, wings, construction methods and verification of technical reliability. The ERDF programme is assisting the CWMT’s 2nd building phase. This consists of a second testing shed for the rotor blade centre of excellence and a new building for offices, workshops and laboratories.
The foundation of the rotor blade centre of excellence was assisted under the 2000 – 2006 Objective 2 Programme, when a shed was renovated on the old Rickmerswerft shipyard site and equipped with test beds.
