Wind Turbine Erosion Protection - Trelleborg Applied Technologies

Wind Turbine - Erosion Protection

Wind turbines operate in the harshest environments, where heavy rain and ice contacts the leading edge of the blade which causes erosion, which in turn significantly reduces the operational efficiency of the wind turbine. Fighting the effects of erosion maintains efficiency and improves the reliability of the turbines key components. It also reduces the maintenance costs, especially for offshore wind farms where the costs can be significant with the inaccessibility of the turbine.

Exceptional substrate protection

Specifically developed to withstand extremely harsh operating conditions. 

Excellent performance characteristics

Outstanding abrasive, tear and tear propagation resistance with an extremely low compression. 

Very versatile 

Available in either a cast sheet formulation or a customized molded part.  Engineering or CAD software support available on request to ensure parts are manufactured to specification. 

Key Applications

Wind turbines operate in the harshest environments, where heavy rain and ice contacts the leading edge of the blade which causes erosion, which in turn significantly reduces the operational efficiency of the wind turbine.
