Composite structures for Renewables sector

The list below is just a preview of our capabilities. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your project.

We have delivered more than 100 composite wind turbine blades delivered.

Blades for wind turbines

We design and build blades for windmills in glass and epoxy composites, which are manufactured using specialized method of vacuum injection into electrically heated moulds. Using optimized materials composition and high-end production methods, we can supply large blades with high stiffness, low density, higher mechanical properties and good fatigue performance for reduced deflection, better efficiencies and an increased, low-maintenance lifespan.

Lift fans

Lift fans are essential components of any hover craft or Surface Effect Ship. High-performance fans are required to blow pressurized air under the vessel, creating an air cushion, which lifts the vessel partly out of the water.

Our composite and aerodynamically designed fans are substantially lighter, more reliable and easier to maintain than fans manufactured in other materials, and are designed to produce over 70 000 operational hours in harsh and corrosive environmental conditions.

UAC composite type IV pressure vessels

Pressure vessels

We supply composite pressure vessels for transport and storage of CNG, biogas and hydrogen, according to PED. Due to size and light, robust and non-corrosive glass fibre materials used to build these type IV pressure vessels, they offer numerous advantages, including: price competitiveness, lower maintenance cost and a longer lifetime. Our pressure vessels can be used for ADR and DOT approved applications for road transport and RID approved solutions for railway applications.

Since 2008 we have been supplying pressure vessels to high-spec semi-submersible oil rigs and drillships for marine and offshore applications, as well as to large offshore / subsea Active Heave Compensated cranes.

Wire and rope sheaves

We supply carbon or glass fibre composite wire and rope sheaves for cranes and other lifting systems. Our sheaves are designed to optimize lifting capacity of the crane, expand wire lifetime, minimize maintenance costs and offer energy savings. These lightweight systems also benefit capacity and stability of the crane, and if installed on board a ship or floating rig, increase stability of the ship or rig.
