Longer Blades = Reduced CoE

Basalt fiber is the next material to help achieve longer, stronger, more efficient blades.

Loose basalt fiber material
  • Basalt fiber is a high-modulus product, outperforming fiberglass and unlocking cost-effective added length and efficiency to turbine blades.

  • Basalt fiber works well with carbon fiber.

  • Low-cost, high-modulus fibers have been shown to reduce Cost of Energy (CoE) in turbine systems. Basalt adds a new tool to achieve advanced CoE reductions.

  • Mafic Basalt Fiber products are a drop-in replacement for current glass or carbon fibers.

  • Basalt fiber fabrics have shown 25% more stiffness than comparable fiberglass reinforcement.
