The Best in Wind Turbine Blade Design
LM Wind Power’s technology plays a central role in the creation of each wind turbine blade type, taking into account several factors such as materials, aerodynamics, blade profile and structure. These factors define the performance and reliability of the LM Wind Power blade and require an extremely high degree of precision. As blade specialists, we know what it takes to create quality wind turbine blades that boost performance, while minimizing loads on the turbine.
Proven Wind Turbine Designs Promote Wind Power Efficiency
The fundamental blade constant has not changed since LM Wind Power first began producing blades in 1978: two glass fiber shells attached to rigid webs. As we develop the world’s longest blades, finding the perfect balance between structure and aerodynamics of wind turbine blades presents the greatest design challenge for each wind turbine blade length.
Aerodynamic properties are crucial in determining how well a blade can extract energy from the wind and efficiently produce wind power. Tried and tested 'building blocks' are the basis for all our blade development projects. We create new, reliable 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 blades will perform under varying conditions of wind, temperature and humidity. We deliberately test blades to their limits, and we continuously improve our products with the latest, innovative wind turbine blade materials.
