Outstanding durability
& optimal aerodynamics

armour EDGE is a new, ultra-tough and aerodynamically optimal leading edge protection solution for wind turbine blades that minimises maintenance cost and maximises energy production.
Existing Leading Edge Protection solutions such as paints, tapes and soft shells typically only protect blades for 3-5 years and result in an inefficient cycle of repairs with worsening aerodynamics, potential structural damage and excessive downtime. In contrast, the armour EDGE solution delivers outstanding durability against leading edge erosion and ensures blades maintain an excellent aerodynamic profile.

Proven durability

Ultra-tough Material

Armour EDGE protection is provided by a series of semi-flexible erosion shields, employing an ultra-tough formulation of thermoplastic material, which extensive rain erosion testing has demonstrated will deliver outstanding durability against leading edge erosion (LEE), in excess of 20 years.

Geometric Design

Each series of erosion shields is designed to match the typical leading edge (LE) geometry of the upper 30%-60% portion of commonly operated wind turbine blade models. In a proprietary process, the relevant Leading Edge geometry data is used to generate a series of CAD designs of thermoforming tools and erosion shields.

Precise Thermoforming

Extruded sheets of our ultra-tough material are thermoformed into a series of 1m long erosion shields. They are then CNC trimmed to ensure high precision geometry and QC checked for fit against the forming tools.

Aerodynamic Surface

armour EDGE erosion shields also feature tapered/chamfered edges to ensure that once they are applied there is a smooth surface transition between the blade and the erosion shield, which is critical in ensuring optimal aerodynamic performance of LEP, and therefore maximum annual energy production (AEP) and return on investment (ROI).
