Longer Blades = Reduced CoE
Basalt fiber is the next material to help achieve longer, stronger, more efficient blades.
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.
