nabla wind hub has introduced the concept of reblading wind turbine which represents not just the possibility to purchase unavailable spare components, often out of production when it comes to old turbine models, but the opportunity to increase the electrical output of the assets, reduce the OPEX, adopt a true Life Extension enabler.
The wind landscape is moving towards a different phase and standard wind blades might no longer fit all purposes:
Our vision is to be able to achieve:
In other words: a remarkable cost reduction ratio (€/kW) for wind turbines, and improved wind farm returns.
With a track record of over 2,000 blades produced starting 2012 for international customers and markets, nabla wind hub, through its Design, Manufacturing, Moulding & Tooling, Blade Service and Testing & Certification departments, supports customers to extract the maximum value from their wind farms, partnering with them from new wind development opportunities up to large scale Reblading programmes.
Different competences, coming from our top management entrepreneurial experiences in wind, marine and aerospace, and multi-skilled teams, lead together with our partners, are joined to craft new blade profiles, adopting advanced materials and innovative technologies driving the efforts towards the next wind farm generation needs: enhancing the value of assets (vs lower or no incentives) while improving wind farm efficiency (vs market saturation) at a lower environmental impact (vs. deteriorated social acceptance).
Our manufacturing abilities come from advanced marine aerospace state-of-the-art techniques, with particular regard to the infusion process and the mix of advanced materials we are able to use when designing and actually producing a new blade or tip.
eTa Blades has established the production facility in Fano, on the eastern cost of Italy next to the Adriatic sea, within the most important Italian naval district. This further enables our competitiveness in terms of cost, access to key suppliers, to all logistics and highly skilled resources.
With its covered 5,500 sqm and 3,000 external warehouse, nabla wind hub can manage high volumes of blade manufacturing.
The facility is equipped with attractive features among which:
