  • Self-Closing Safety Gates for Regulating Platform Access - Case Study

    Semco Maritime is a project engineering company and they needed a safety solution to secure access to specific platforms. These platforms were used as a means by which semco Maritime would transport wind turbine blades.  Kee Safety's Self-Closing Safety Gate served as the perfect method of access protection that would keep workers safe and stand up against the elements for the long ...

  • Does Wind Turbine Blade Length Really Matter?

    Simply put: Longer wind turbine blade length means greater power production. Blades capture the wind which forces the rotation of the rotor; longer blades means more area for the wind to push against, which means greater force and rotational power. However, how much difference does blade length make overall, in comparison to other factors? There is a standard formula that can be used to apply the ...

  • Tillsonburg: From tobacco farming to building wind turbine blades

    The story of Tillsonburg is probably close to the ideal example of what the Ontario government was looking for when it enacted the Green Energy Act in 2009. A small town of 16,000 people in southwestern Ontario, Tillsonburg’s history is famously celebrated in Stomping Tom Connor’s distinctive drawl when he sung about making seven ...

  • Performance estimation of HAWT blade using NACA airfoils

    Wind energy is one of the developing resources of renewable energy. In order to increase the use of wind energy, development of wind turbine blade with higher power coefficient plays a vital role. The work being presented here is to give new design of blade for VESTAS V82–1.65MW (HAWT). In this work, NACA airfoils are used for the determination of aerodynamic performance characteristics of ...
