Successful SME Instrument Phase II: ground-breaking blades for wind turbines

20-06-17

Winfoor and Marstrom developed an innovative and ground-breaking blade technology called Triblade. This disruptive concept is based on a “3-in-1” modular blade, built as a composite material truss that will allow rotor blades to be longer, stiffer and lighter, whilst reducing around 65.2% production costs and increasing ease of transport and installation resulting in up to 15.5% CoE reduction. These are game changing improvements that can play an important role in driving the development of next generation of larger turbines and accelerate the transition to greater use of renewables worldwide.

We at Innovayt worked in close cooperation with the Swedish companies Winfoor and Marstrom to develop a proposal to the Horizon 2020 – SME Instrument Phase 2, which was approved for funding - after also securing a SME Instrument Phase 1 for the same project idea.

Rikard Berthilsson (Winfoor’s CEO): Innovayt and especially Bruno (project manager) were amazing. It has been a pleasure working with them and they made the entire process of completing the proposal very easy and smooth. And yes we got it approved! I can really recommend Innovayt to anyone that has a good project and would like to apply for funding. It helps to get a really good proposal and increases the chance of approval significantly.”
