The long-term vision for the ReliaBlade project is to develop a methodology for design, operation and maintenance of wind turbine rotor blades by using a Digital Twin of every blade manufactured. As showed in the figure the Digital Twin follows the current state and predicts the future state of each blade individually during its entire life cycle based on automated condition monitoring, multiscale modelling and virtual testing. The project will deliver a cross-sectoral link of industry and academia by combining commercial and in-house modules into one digital platform using a fully interdisciplinary approach.To achieve this ambitious vision, development of several methodologies and advanced tools are required. Wind turbine blade Digital Twin development and demonstration requires combined effort of the specialized scientific and industrial teams supported by provision of world class research infrastructure which are not exclusively available at national level. The presentation will present the vision, project and current status in more details.
