Wind Energy and Tidal Turbine Blades
Throughout the last 15+ years of market development, leading composite manufacturers such as Norco have continuously contributed to the increasing efficiency of wind energy harvesting. Significant innovation in composite design, processing and particularly tooling has seen wind turbine blades increase from 23 metres to 80 metres and above while meeting strict weight limitations.
Norco has a vast array of experience in the design, specification and processing of large composite structures from wind turbine blades to hydro-electric generator components. Norco is able to support any project where the right combination of refined engineering and precisely manufactured composite components is imperative to the successful design implementation in the renewables market.
Throughout previous renewable energy projects at Norco, we have developed exceptional knowledge and experience in the manufacture of composite tooling. This is a crucial element in the production sequence, defining the accuracy, quality and longevity of production components such as wind turbine blades.
