Blaaster wind turbine
Where others only saw problems, Blaaster saw opportunities. Together with Inventas Blaaster has developed a modular, robust wind turbine that is easy to transport, install and maintain, and which can supply 700 Norwegian households.
When staring with the new wind turbine, Blaaster went back to square one. All the duties of wind turbine were researched and systemized before they could build the new turbine optimally. Inventas worked with the project for two years and gained deep understanding on how the whole ecosystem around wind turbines works.
The new Blaaster wind turbines are made of modules that are inexpensive to manufacture, and can be transported on normal roads and be installed without any significant environmental impact.
The 3 megawatt turbine uses gearless technology enabling more stable and less expensive operation. Many features are embedded in the supporting structure, which reduces the number of parts significantly, and typically vulnerable components were removed or replaced to reduce the need for maintenance. The power electronics that is necessary to transform the electricity for the power grid has been moved down at ground level. This provides better access and saves both space and weight in the tower.
