RWE will be using recyclable rotor blades at its Danish offshore wind farm Thor. 40 of the 72 (SG 14-236 DD) wind turbines will be equipped with recyclable rotor blades manufactured by Siemens Gamesa.
Installation at sea is expected in 2026. Thanks to a new type of resin with a special chemical structure the composite materials used in Siemens Gamesa’s recyclable blades can be separated again. This process ensures that the properties of the individual materials remain intact so that they can be reused in new casting applications, for example in the automotive industry or in consumer goods. RWE will build the Thor wind farm in the Danish North Sea, approximately 22 kilometres from Thorsminde on the west coast of Jutland and has a planned capacity of more than 1,000 MW.
