Achieving the Perfect Fit
Today’s auction-driven industry requires the optimization of cost in every step of the manufacturing process. As the global market leader, we ensure short lead times and give manufacturers freedom to choose and produce cost-competitive turbines.
We strive to reduce complexity, from initial design, prototyping and in-house production to final delivery and ongoing support, including on-site lay up support.
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 precise shapes, a kit becomes a lightweight yet sturdy component to support the wind turbine blade.
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 for consistent quality. Our global sites all hold ISO Quality Management System certificates.
“At Gurit, I have found a team in which I have felt very welcomed from the first moment. I feel that my work takes place in an environment that favors my professional growth.“
“At Gurit, you realize your personal potential. You can feel the encouragement and support from the company when you are working.“
A flexible approach
As the biggest core kitter worldwide, we build our know-how on long-lasting relationships with market-leading turbine manufacturers.
Combined with our specialized technical knowledge of the kitting process, we can help with choosing the best core material and supplier to achieve maximum cost-competitiveness, whilst ensuring full cost transparency.
To lower Levelized Cost of Energy, the wind energy industry relies on OEMs to produce larger blades, which in turn complicates the associated logistics. Our global sites are positioned in close vicinity to blade manufacturers, reducing both logistics and related costs. We draw on our experience with blades and an in-house engineering unit to form 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.
