In many wind turbines today, our carbon fiber-based composites are already making an important contribution. Thanks to the high stiffness of these materials combined with their low density, they can be used to produced slender rotor blade structures capable of withstanding extreme stress. Efficient and economical mass production is now possible in these applications thanks to our specific material and process know-how.
Ideal for rotor blades of the future
Due to increasing energy demand and better cost efficiency (Cost of Energy), wind turbines are being constructed with increasingly large rotor diameters. Blade lengths of over 80 meters are already a reality and blade lengths of over 100 meters are planned. The strength and stiffness of carbon fiber composites combined with their low density really pay off here.
