Saertex subsidiary Devold AMT has received the Most Innovative Partner 2017 award from LM Wind Power for its development of a multiaxial fabric for wind turbine blades.
The exclusive material for the longest rotor blade in the world (88.4 m in length) was developed in close collaboration with the development team at LM Wind Power.
The benchmark-setting LM 88.4 P rotor blade was designed for an 8 MW offshore turbine with a rotor diameter spanning an area larger than the Colosseum in Rome. The enormous length of the rotor blades places extreme demands on the materials used, in particular their rigidity to weight ratio. Devold developed a fabric for this application, which is said to comprise a new type of reinforcement material and an innovative way of processing it.
Kare Dybvik, Managing Director at Devold, received the award at the LM Wind Power Supplier Days in Amsterdam in October.
