Top priority for the wind power industry is to reduce total cost of energy. One of the components that influence it the most are the wind turbine rotor blades. They use a lot of expensive material, they are to a large extent produced by hand, they are made in one piece, and they are long. Both production and shipping are challenging and come at high cost.
Winfoor has a solution. It is called Triblade and it is a disruptive technology for large scale wind turbine rotor blades. The unique technology is a 3-in-1-blade that lowers the costs for rotor blades dramatically. It makes shipping easy and efficient. Blades become lighter, they can be made in modules and the production process can be automated to a level that is not possible to reach with conventional blades.
Looking ahead, Triblade can also spearhead the development of next generation larger and more powerful wind turbines, by allowing for longer blades than today.
It is a game changing technology that can accelerate the transition to greater use of wind power worldwide and give Winfoor a unique opportunity on a global rotor blade market that is projected to reach $33 billion by 2025.
