Capturing the wind--onshore or offshore, at all speeds, all around the world--calls for wind turbine blade reliability. And reliability comes from experience.
LM Wind Power’s technology plays a central role in the creation of each wind turbine blade type. Factors such as wind turbine blade materials, aerodynamics, blade profile and structure define the performance and reliability of the LM Wind Power blade, and these turbine blade design factors all require an extremely high degree of precision. As wind farm blade specialists, we know what it takes to create quality wind turbine blades that boost performance while minimizing loads on the turbine.
LM Wind Power began producing wind turbine blades in 1978, and although the basic blade design hasn’t changed, we have continued working on developing the world’s longest wind blades. Finding the perfect balance between wind turbine blade design and aerodynamics presents the greatest design challenge for each wind turbine blade length.
Aerodynamic properties are crucial in determining how well a wind turbine blade can extract energy from the wind and efficiently produce wind power. Tried and tested building blocks are the basis for all of our blade development projects. We create new, reliable wind turbine blade designs by developing and testing the best materials for wind turbine blades. We then combine these using our advanced design tools.
With a proven track record of more than 215,000 blades installed since 1978, we know our wind turbine blades will perform under varying conditions of wind, temperature and humidity. In the wind turbine blade manufacturing process, We deliberately test blades to their limits, and we continuously improve our products with the latest, innovative wind turbine blade materials.
Our 15 wind turbine blade engineering and manufacturing facilities operate in established and emerging wind markets worldwide. We know what it takes to design and manufacture the most advanced, reliable and high-quality wind turbine blades in the industry, and we design our wind turbine blades to endure the forces of nature for more than 25 years.
As one of the world’s most renowned wind turbine blade manufacturers and suppliers, we know how to reduce the cost of energy--making wind power the right choice.
