Fans designed for Madrid Fly’s vertical wind tunnel succesfully tested

On April 10th, the first of the 4 fans for skydiving purposes jointly designed by KeelWit and Zitron was tested in the biggest test bench for axial fans in the world. With a size over 4m diameter and a weight exceeding 10 tons each, they shall deliver the needed power to propel skydivers at a speed of 300 km/h. Energy efficiency, acceleration speed and airflow quality have been some of the development guidelines followed by both engineering teams. These fans shall be installed in a very short time in Madrid Fly’s wind tunnel, where the construction of the building that shall host all the technical equipment and devices designed by KeelWit Technology, has just...

The works of Madrid fly indoor skydiving wind tunnel, engineered by KeelWit progress as scheduled in Las Rozas (Madrid)

Three months have gone by since Madrid Fly obtained the necessary permits to start building the biggest skydiving wind tunnel in Spain, and the civil works progress as planned. After doing the earthmoving for the complex foundations and place the frame and the formwork, the concreting of the slab and the walls of the lower part of the wind tunnel has begun. Despite the heavy rain that has hit Madrid during the last months, the works have continued without setbacks.

KeelWit Technology develops a project on solar panels aerodynamics for Gestamp Solar

Gestamp is an international group dedicated to the design, development and manufacturing of metal automotive components. Gestamp Renewables, a division of Corporación Gestamp, is an industrial group that operates and supplies components within the renewable energy sector. Gestamp Solar is one of the several companies that nowadays integrate Gestamp Renewables. It is focused on generating solar energy projects that are both ecological and highly profitable, offering tailor-made solutions as required. To date, Gestamp Solar has participated in the development, construction, maintenance and operation of plants with a total capacity of over 400 MW. Thanks to a permanent investment in R&D projects, Gestamp Solar is developing a new supporting structure for solar panels. It has needed an aerodynamic analysis to ensure its functionality, which has been contracted to KeelWit Technology. We have made different CFD 3D analyses, later validated through several wind tunnel tests. As a result of this complete study, Gestamp Solar has obtained relevant information about the operating conditions of this new device under strong...

Madrid Fly, in which KeelWit Technology is shareholder, gets the building permit needed for immediate construction of a skydiving vertical wind tunnel in Madrid

After more than 2 years trying to clear out all the doubts of Las Rozas de Madrid’s Town Hall concerning the project, due to its novelty and lack of benchmark in Madrid, Madrid Fly, company whose engineering team and partner is KeelWit Technology, obtains all the necessary permits to start building this same week the biggest skydiving arena in Spain. This lapse of time has been devoted to improve the aerodynamic design of the flying area and to optimize the fans’ performance as well as to enhance the cooling system needed for the high-speed circulating air. These sport facilities shall be used both by professional flyers and general public, wanting to experiment without risks the feeling of free flying, floating embedded in a vertical air flow ascending at speeds from 160 to 300 km/h depending on the flyer’s expertise. With a maximum speed of over 300 km/h and room for up to 8 skydivers at the same time, the design and construction of such a facility represents a great challenge for any engineering team. Madrid Fly’s wind tunnel shall become a true benchmark in skydiving world as it has been designed and built step by step focusing on engineering solutions for the design weak points of the competitors’ technology worldwide. In order to do so, KeelWit Technology has worked side by side with Alberto Fuertes, several times world cup champion in many skydiving categories. Alberto has helped launching the majority of the skydiving facilities in Europe in the last 8 years. He shall be running the facility once it is open in 2015, being also a partner of Madrid...
