SP was recently presented with the coveted International Award for Creativity by the Association of Industrial Engineers of Catalonia.
The panel unanimously voted for SP’s entry, which was for the design and manufacture of SPRINT material, which is used in the production of 25 metre and 28 metre blades for 850kw wind turbines. The award was presented to Frank Gomez, Managing Director of SP Systems S.A., and demonstrates the company’s commitment to the continuous development and introduction of new technology to the wind energy industry in order to help improve its customers’ production processes and efficiency levels.
“We are thrilled to have been recognized by the Association of Industrial Engineers for our contribution to the wind energy industry,” says Gomez. “SP thrives on pushing technology forward to help its customers be more efficient and competitive in this growing market. It is what we do best and what we will continue to do.” Working closely with key blade manufacturers, SP has developed processes and materials that help make blades stronger and more reliable, yet are cost effective, ensuring that manufacturers can help developers offer commercially viable energy supplies using high performance turbines. SP Systems S.A., based in Albacete, Spain, was established in 2001 to increase SP’s capability of supplying materials such as the triple award-winning SPRINT to the wind energy industry.
