"Current Developments in the Certification of Wind Turbines and Wind Farms"
Mr. GILKES, Steve
Lloyd's Register, UK
I joined British Aerospace from School as an undergraduate apprentice and worked through various flight testing and aerodynamics roles culminating in Senior Engineer for performance estimation for the HOTOL aerospaceplane project, with a period in Japan on their project. I switched careers to wind energy, joining the WEG after an MSc in alternative energy. I developed blade aerodynamics and load calculation methods before any standards had been written, also developing noise reduction technology and overseeing measurement projects. The move to Garrad Hassan began with the development of a fully commercial load calculation service, as well as coding software (BLADED) and doing the calculations. This was mixed with type approval support consultancy and some accident and failure investigation. This grew in to an involvement in mechanical engineering, creating a department of 25 engineers and the development of a full turbine design capability with involvement in 15 turbine designs from 1 to 7 MW. The move to LR has brought new opportunities with extensive involvement in offshore structural assessments and development of new services relating to technology development and type approval.
