Striving for the Perfect Fit

Today’s auction-driven industry requires optimizing cost in every step of manufacturing. As the global market leader, we ensure short lead times, while also de-bundling core material kitting from material suppliers, giving manufacturers freedom to choose and produce cost-competitive turbines.

We strive to reduce strain on blade manufacturers from initial design, prototyping and our in-house production to final delivery and ongoing support. Our production setup is flexible and allows us following turbine OEMs as they are expanding.

Core material kits consist of up to 1600 unique items used to increase the durability and performance of wind blades. By combining the right thickness and sizes and cutting them into the right shapes, a kit becomes a lightweight yet sturdy component to support the wind turbine blade. A kit usually consists of shells for the lower and upper part of the blade and a vertical web in the middle for extra support.

What we do and how we do it is a direct consequence of a constant and conscious attention to quality. We understand that wind turbine manufacturers operate in an industry with very little room for error, and so, all aspects of our processes are calibrated to the finest detail. Our global sites all hold ISO Quality Management System certificates.

 As the biggest core kitter worldwide, we give blade manufacturers the free choice of materials and suppliers, so each individual project can achieve maximum cost-competitiveness.

We build our know-how on long-lasting relationships with the market leading turbine manufacturers. Combined with our specialized technical knowledge of the kitting process, we can help with choosing the core material and the supplier, always ensuring full cost transparency.

 To lower Levelized Cost of Energy, the wind energy industry counts on OEMs to produce larger blades which complicates associated logistics. Our global sites sit in close vicinity to blade manufacturers, reducing logistics prices on behalf of partners and suiting the demand for bigger blades. We draw on more than 30 years of experience with blades and an in-house engineering unit to work out new solutions as turbines are getting more complex.

We know that the aerodynamic shape of the blade demands high precision, so each project undergoes a thorough prototyping process until the product fits perfectly into your blade. Finding the right balance between a short development cycle and optimization of the prototype is of high priority to us.
