What awaits visitors to HUSUM Wind 2019


Trade visitors to HUSUM Wind 2019 can look forward to an exciting conference and lecture program, as well as specialist seminars, workshops, and matchmaking formats. Here’s a brief overview:

HUSUM Wind, September 10-13, 2019, covers the entire value chain of the onshore and offshore industry in the areas of turbine construction, service, planning, financing and operation, plant components, and raw materials. Located in the middle of Germany’s largest wind-farm network between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, the trade fair offers a unique contact platform for the wind industry, characterized by practical relevance, networks that have grown over decades and an extraordinary personal atmosphere. HUSUM Wind is rounded off by the accompanying congress, forums, and matchmaking formats such as the international cooperation exchange HUSUM Wind Match (organized by WTSH and Enterprise Europe Network) for research institutions and companies, and the Windcareer job fair.

HUSUM Wind 2019 Congress

Current, application-specific and interdisciplinary topics will be presented at the HUSUM Wind 2019 Congress. The content spectrum includes digitalization, big data, technology, service topics, and new business models such as PPAs and legal issues. In addition, there will also be lectures in special areas such as innovation and materials research and computer security. The speakers come from the fields of industry, energy supply, certification and financing, IT, research, and science. These include OEMs with topics such as technological innovation and new services, digitalization and repowering.

Forums and lecture program

Opening day, September 10, already reflects the diversity of the program — with lectures on technical innovations in wind-turbine construction, repowering and dismantling or further use and PPAs, as well as press conferences by such organizations as RDRWind e.V., (Industrial Association for Repowering, Dismantling and Recycling of Wind Turbines). The Plarad Supplier Forum and the VDE-Verlag Forum will be on the second day of the fair. The latter will present high-end technology for the digitalization of wind turbines, including topics such as “Reprocessing of bearings and lubrication systems”, “Innovative rotor blade and tower drive systems,” and “Demand-oriented night marking.” A further highlight is the HUSUM Wind Innovation Day, curated by Dr. Sascha Peters of Haute Innovation, the Berlin-based future agency for materials and technology. There, trade visitors and exhibitors can inform themselves about innovative material technologies and new developments, especially with a view to the profitable continued operation of wind turbines. The forum organizer, watt2.0, will discuss hydrogen as a promising storage solution for excess wind power on Wednesday, and on the following day they will focus on sector coupling with “Mobility meets Renewables.”

On the third day of the fair, the lecture program will continue with practical, predominantly technical topics such as electrical engineering, maintenance and repair, and operational management and plant safety. Here, such organizations as TÜV Nord, ARGE Netz, and ENGIE will be presenting their projects. And, as usual, the last day of the trade fair will feature the Windcareer job fair, held under the motto “HR and Recruiting.” This is also reflected in the program with contributions on study and career opportunities and promising business fields in the wind- and renewable-energy sectors.
