CIATEQ is a research centre in Mexico, part of the National Science and Technology Council (CONACYT), specialized in advanced manufacturing. www.ciateq.mx.
The Wind Turbine Group is part of the Turbomachinery Unit, belonging to the Mechanical Systems Department of CIATEQ. This group performs research, development and innovation (RD+i) of cutting edge technology for boosting equipment, component and turbine manufacturers; and specialized service providers of the Wind Industry in Mexico.
The Wind Turbine Group has four main research topics:
1) Development of small wind turbines (with a rotor diameter ≤ 200 m2, up to ≈ 50 kW), including components and/or the whole machine.
2) Development of advanced manufacturing technology for wind turbine blades and rotors.
3) Testing of small wind turbine blades and power trains.
4) Advanced inspection and minor repairs of composite wind turbine blades.
The Mexican Wind Energy Innovation Centre (Centro Mexicano de Innovación en Energía Eólica, CEMIE-Eólico) is a consotium formed for research, development and innovation of wind energy in Mexico http://evaluarer.iie.org.mx:8080/cemie.
CIATEQ participates in two strategic projects within the
Project P07 “Integration and consolidation of national capacities for the development of small wind turbines, though the design, construction and exhaustive testing of a 30 kW capacity wind turbine” which general objective is to perform the technological development (including design, prototyte manufacturring, testing and technology transfer) of a 30 kW wind turbine through synercy among national institutions.
Project P09 “Small wind turbine (up to 50 kW) blade development” which general objective is to perfom the technological development, manufacturing and mechanical testing of small wind turbine blades, one for a 10 kW machine and another for a 30 kW machine.
