UK Scientists plan world-beating”ultra large” wind turbine blades
Scientists hoping to create the longest blade in the world for the next generation of wind turbines took another step closer to realising their dream this week.
The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has signed a £15.5million contract with the Isle of Wight-based blade developer Blade Dynamics to work on “ultra-large” blades stretching between 80 to 100 metres long.
Wind turbine blades deployed offshore at the moment reach between 60 to 75 metres in length.
