Natural Power recently provided planning support and conducted structural assessments as part of a retro-fit blade tip extension pilot project for Siemens Gamesa’s fleet of 2.3MW onshore wind turbines at Fred.Olsen Renewables’ Crystal Rig II site in the Scottish Borders. It is expected that the tip extensions of 2.55m will achieve an annual energy production boost of up to 10%.

Shane Bermingham, Engineering Design Lead at Natural Power, said: “As we move to a subsidy free market, any increases asset owners can see in production is a very attractive proposition. It is great to see the evolution of wind turbine technology and the optimisation of their performance, and we are delighted to have been involved with the blade tip extension project with Fred.Olsen Renewables and Siemens Gamesa at Crystal Rig.”
