Reducing the impact of extreme weather conditions on wind turbines
Ogab®'s innovative system works by utilising custom-designed air nozzles and pipes across the wind turbine blades to create a protective layer of air over the blade's surface. This sheet of air creates a cushioning effect. The protective air layer can help protect the blades from leading edge erosion and surface damage caused by abrasive elements and harsh weather conditions such as hail, snow, and rain.
Air Edge not only protects against erosion, it also helps to prolong the lifespan of the blades and reduce costly maintenance and downtime. As an additional function, the technology is able to provide an on demand warm airflow through the pipes and nozzles. This can be deployed to help the blades to maintain temperature and prevent the turbine from freezing and shutting down in extreme weather conditions.
