UpWind Solutions and Suspendem have recently entered into a strategic relationship. With the partnership, Suspendem will be able to provide UpWind’s Vortex Generator (VG) Solution to the Canadian wind industry market for the first time.
UpWind partnered with Smart Blade and 3M to deliver the best-in-class VG solution for wind turbine rotor blades. The VG solution has successfully increased Annual Energy Production (AEP) by 1-3% for 10+ turbine technologies. UpWind developed a proprietary installation process with Smart Blade that is customised to each turbine blade type, utilises precise installation lines and repeatable installation procedures, and uses a strong adhesive from 3M that can last the life of the turbine. With guidance and training from UpWind, the strategic alliance will allow Suspendem to use this custom installation process and provide the VG Solution to both parties’ customers in Canada.
