Upgrading your blades to withstand erosion of the elements
Leading edge erosion of wind turbine blades has been a well-known phenomenon for years. The erosion is caused by rain, hail, sand, seawater and dirt in the air.
Eroded leading edges will reduce the aerodynamic efficiency of turbine blades. Research indicates that this erosion may affect annual energy production.
To avoid expensive repairs or even breakdown of the turbine, upgrading your blades, applying leading edge protection, can prove beneficial.
