Interview with Arctura:
- Why are you sponsoring Blades USA?
Arctura is pleased to be participating as a “Blade Innovator” at Blades USA 2022! We are preparing to release a new product that will reduce wind farm operations costs associated with damage caused by lightning, and we believe that this is a great opportunity to get the word out in advance of our product launch.
2. What are you most looking forward to at Blades USA?
We are looking forward to meeting new people in the industry, learning about the challenges faced by owner-operators, and talking about the new products that we are developing to address some of the challenges that we already know about.
3. What will you be speaking about on the day?
We will be talking about lightning and the toll it takes on wind farm owners and operators. We will also be describing how our new blade coating, ArcGuide, enhances the performance of existing lightning protection systems and has the potential to significantly reduce blade damage caused by lightning.
4. Why is it so important now more than ever for people to come to Blades USA?
The global wind energy industry has been an unqualified success over the last decade, quadrupling in capacity with steep reductions in the cost of energy. However, the industry needs to continue to improve in order to continue increasing penetration in the grid energy market. The Blades USA forum is a great place for experts to come together and share ideas and innovations to keep the industry moving forward.
5. What can we expect from Arctura Wind this year?
We have a lot going on at Arctura! In 2022, we will be piloting several current and future technologies alongside our partners in industry, academia, and the Government Laboratories. Stay tuned for news about our field studies and new products!
Arctura will be giving a Pecha Kucha style presentation in our 6 MINUTES. 6 SLIDES. 6 INNOVATIONS session at 11:30am on day 1.
