Collaboration ventures with wind turbine operators

After meetings with operators of wind farms, WTS has the possibility to use several pilot plants in a wind farm in Schleswig-Holstein for the validation of the results of the 3D-serrations.

This leads to series readiness, including component certification and to the development of business models for the marketing of retrofit solutions and to products for the equipment of new plants.

 

Collaboration with FORWIND and Fraunhofer IWES

WTS - Wind-Tuning-Systems cooperates with the research association FORWIND in Oldenburg and Fraunhofer IWES in the development of its products. Within the framework of a project funded by the DBU (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt), the mode of operation of the non-return valves and wind turbines could be investigated and confirmed on the basis of wind tunnel tests and complex simulations.


Awards

WTS - Wind-Tuning-Systems is a multi-award-winning start-up. Its distinctions include the Sustainability Award which WTS won in 2016 as part of the “Durchstarten” accelerator organised by Innowerft, the incubator programme by SAP AG.

In 2018, WTS qualified for the finale of the BW Venture Capital Pitch presented by the Börse Stuttgart stock exchange and was awarded as one of the 10 most innovative start-ups of the Zollernalb Chamber of Industry and Commerce region in the Gipfeltreffen competition.
