In 2012, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology in Bremerhaven opened a new engineering building for testing rotor blades. The offices in the upper storeys are arranged in a wing-shaped layout and enjoy an impressive view of the North Sea.

The ribbon windows on the office levels consist of sound-insulated windows from the GEALAN S 7000 IQ system installed in the insulation layer. A façade screen made from a transparent foil membrane permits unrestricted natural ventilation and use of the external sun protection at high wind speeds.
