Blade Dynamics' continuous modular technology enables rotors that are lighter, more powerful and more cost-effective than those using existing techniques. Blades of this type can enable turbines to produce more power, more reliably, over a longer service life. This technology will enable a new generation of larger and far more effective turbines both onshore and offshore. The annual energy production (AEP) of turbines can be increased by up to 15%, which has a great impact on the financial performance of wind farms and their need for subsidies.
Blade Dynamics' seamless structural technology has multiple patents granted and pending. Blades have been manufactured, tested and GL certified using this platform and the first; the Dynamic 49, was certified in early 2012. Weighing around 6 tons, the Dynamic 49 is the lightest blade of its size available and is easily transportable in multiple pieces. This blade demonstrates the future of wind energy. This technology is the enabler for ultra large, high performance offshore blades that are currently in development by the company. This development is progressing with the recently announced Energy Technologies Institute Long Blade Programme. This project is expected to create the longest and most advanced wind turbine rotor ever built.
