On February 28, the Twin-Control consortium gathered for the 30th month plenary meeting at AMRC facilities in Sheffield, UK.
The AMRC is a research centre linked to the University of Sheffield that works with the most relevant aircraft builders (Boeing, Airbus, etc.) and their complete supply chain (Rolls&Royce, GKN Aerospace, Sandvik, DMG-Mori, etc). In the last years they are expanding their activities to other sectors, such as nuclear or automotive, and they have even created a training centre.
According to project coordinator Mikel Armendia, Twin-Control “goes as planned”. “The project is currently deeply involved in the industrial demonstration stage: in the last 6 months of the project, the main goal will be to evaluate the impact of Twin-Control in its two industrial scenarios, automotive and aerospace”.
Even if the severe weather conditions in UK forced the partners to leave the AMRC during the meeting, the organiser, Erdem Ozturk, was able to re-arrange a venue and the consortium continued working in a conference room in Sheffield city centre.
