Borealis Wind

Below 2°C wind turbine blades develop ice. Once there is ice on the blades, the wind turbine must be shut down, as the ice posses significant hazards during operation. Currently the wind turbines remain shut down until the ice sheds naturally. This downtime results in $100 Million in annual revenue loss in Canada alone. Borealis Wind offers a simple blade heating retrofit, which can be installed in any wind turbine. The heating system melts the ice off the blades, reducing the time that the wind turbine is shut down.
