BorealisWind Ice Protection System
De-Icing Solutions for Cold Climate Wind Farms
Maximize Your Wind Turbine Performance
Once winter sets in and colder temperatures take hold, the energy produced by wind turbines can be seriously disrupted by ice forming on the blades. A light icing event can reduce energy production by 15-30%. Harsh conditions can reduce energy production up to 80% or result in the wind farm shutting down.
The BorealisWind IPS prevents ice formation on wind turbine blades to ensure continuous energy production for wind farms in cold conditions.
Consistent energy production resulting in as much as a 10% increase to annual energy production
Prevents ice-related damage to your turbine blades, and avoids harmful ice induced downtimes
Ensure safe working conditions for maintenance crews and the public
Maintenance, service, predictive insights, and repairs for the turbine‘s full lifecycle are included
We reuse or recycle system components to reduce the environmental footprint and minimize waste
Ice Protection Systems That Work
Our patented technology is both an anti-icing and de-icing system. The system heats the blade from the inside utilizing durable, lightweight fabric duct. Heat is distributed through the full length of the blade to shedding the ice from the exterior. The IPS prevents unexpected shutdowns of wind turbines and ensures stable energy delivery during winter when energy costs and financial returns are the highest. Removing the ice from the blade also reduces wear on the turbine and reduces the safety risks caused by ice build up.
