Production will start during the second quarter of 2010.
New wind turbine blade concept
The Envision contract marks one of the first contracts based on LM Glasfiber’s new wind turbine blade concept, GloBlade® for 1.5 MW wind turbines.
The new wind turbine blade concept could increase annual energy production by 4-5% over 40.3 blades fooling aerodynamic design adjustments.
Ian Telford, VP Sales and Marketing of LM Glasfiber, says: "With this agreement we further strengthen our foothold in China and secure our continued growth in this strategically important market. We again prove our leadership within rotor blade design as we bring the first series of GloBlades to the market.
“This innovative concept, with highly efficient blades that set new standards for cost of energy from wind, will not only increase our market share in China but expand the potential wind market into lower wind areas across the world."
