14. April 2015, mwLoADS: a new load simulation toolbox for wind turbines
morewind has developed mwLoADS, a toolbox for load simulation, that enables an efficient wind turbine engineering process. The company product is based on the leading open source software
FAST from NREL and was already used in several wind turbine design projects including certification. Its main features are efficient Pre- and Post-Processing, a nice time series viewer and the
ability to run load cases in parallel within a network. The toolbox is ideal for wind turbine OEM and component supplier like control system manufacturer who for example can use the toolbox as a
development and test environment for new turbine control software.
16. February 2015, First LiDAR system installed successfully!
After assessing a wind park in Ireland, morewind received a follow-up order from the same client and has now installed the first LiDAR system on top of a wind turbine. The measurement technology
is used to define the direction and speed in front of the turbine. After evaluating the data, the performance of the turbine can be determined and the nacelle can be adjusted optimally. Within
the following weeks and months, further installations will follow to analyse and optimise the entire wind park.
3. December 2014, EWEA Workshop in Malmö
On 9 and 10 December, speakers and interested parties meet on the second edition of the EWEA technology workshop on “Analysis of Operating Wind Farms” in Malmö, Sweden. We are going to attend the two-day event and Arne Löhn, CEO of morewind, will perform a lecture about “Detection of aerodynamic imbalances” and present the in-house analyzing software “mwRotate”.

19. November 2014, New project with SIMPACK
morewind currently realizes a new project for a Korean company, whereas the focus is set on the drive train vibration
analysis. A model of the component is built up using SIMPACK. Here, the client can directly profit from the longstanding experiences of morewind with the
Multi-Body Simulation software.
4. November 2014, morewind awarded for "Interesting entrepreneur's story"
The annual start-up awards, which recognize young entrepreneurship in the region of Mecklenburg-Pomeria, were presented yesterday evening by the local newspaper Ostsee-Zeitung. This year, morewind got the award in the category “Interesting entrepreneurship’s story”. The jury had to choose from 8 finalists that were picked out of 40 applications and awarded the best three concepts. We are happy about the prize and would like to congratulate all winners and nominees!
27. October 2014, morewind goes solar
The name „morewind“ indicates that wind energy is our passion. But as we also enjoy to work for other renewables, we are happy
to announce our first job within the solar energy sector. The aim of the project is to get a more detailed calculation of the substructure of a photovoltaic power station by using the
finite-element-method. Up-to-date FEM-software and modern technologies are necessary for a successful structural analysis and therefore an inherent part of our provided services. So now, we will
bring our expertise into this upcoming new task!
29. September 2014, Successful participation at trade fair
Last friday was the official ending of this years global on- & offshore expo, WindEnergy Hamburg: The team of morewind is looking back onto various interesting expert talks and onto professional exchange that took place within the context of the international trade fair. In cooperation with Andreas Kiehn who we shared our booth with, four successful days are lying behind us and we hope to see you again at HUSUM 2015.
12. September, Design relaunch for morewind
We are happy to announce that morewind has a new Corporate Design! The central part of the renewing is the logo which is also integrated into our over-worked website!
10. September 2014, Follow-up order for morewind
The first project is finished and the next one already begins: After optimizing the controller and calculating the loads for a 50kW wind turbine successfully, morewind is happy about the follow-up order from the client to also perform strength calculation for the same turbine. It is an advantage for a customer when load and strength calculations come from a single source. Within this project, we are able to combine our longstanding experience in both segments.
2. September 2014, Three weeks to go to the „WindEnergy" expo
The expo “WindEnergy Hamburg” is going to start on 23th September 2014 and we are now counting down the days. Then, all visitors of the international trade fair can find us in hall 1 upper floor, booth 412. The team of morewind is looking forward to inform about our services and to professional exchange.
25. June 2014, morewind uses BLADED
morewind extends its service portfolio and starts to use the DNV/GL software BLADED next to FAST/AD, ANSYS and SIMPACK. The commonly known standard software for design and certification shall make the daily business more efficient. At the same time, clients in the offshore sector and other BLADED-user can be addressed directly.
13. June 2014, Expo: "WindEnergy Hamburg"
From 23.-26. September, morewind is attending the global on- and offshore expo “WindEnergy” in Hamburg. As an exhibitor, we would like to
inform about our services especially in load simulation, structural analysis (with FEM) and wind farm optimisation. Furthermore, we are looking forward to many interesting conversations at our
Visit us at the “WindEnergy” expo – Hall B1 upper floor, booth 412!
4. June 2014, Autodesk Product Design Suite
In the future, the Autodesk software „Product Design Suite“ will be used within the company for design tasks. Thereby, we would like to provide our clients with an even more efficient service and support their individual activities with the most modern solutions. The software package complements our services in 3D product design.
21. May 2014, morewind and MeteoPole

The focus of the collaboration is to represent and promote our technologies and know how in this important and continuously expanding market and to intensify the cooperation with local firms with the help of MeteoPole.
7. May 2014, First order load simulation offshore
morewind got its first order in modelling and simulating offshore wind turbines. The main focus of the project is to create a model of the turbines including a substructure in BLADED based on information provided by the client. Furthermore, the work package contains performing load calculations, analyzing results and identifying possibilities for optimisation in the future. The project allows morewind to bring in its many years of knowledge and experience in load simulation.
April 2014, Consulting: Load simulation BLADED
In April, morewind had the opportunity to prove its consulting competences in the field of load simulation. The aim of the project was to advise and support a client within the process of load calculation. In the context of the order, a BLADED-model which was provided with a controller dll was tested and corrected. With validating the given data, the project could be finished successfully and with great satisfaction of the client.
