The Norsetek Wind Turbine Technology

In Norsetek we combine industrial design methodology and conventional solutions in order to design a new type of large wind turbines.

Our main objective of achievement is within the rotor blades, which can be built

   Lighter,            Larger and by            Less expenses

Further to the rotor, the technology facilitates for a range of other improvements including lighter and taller towers and a star shaped rotor.

The Norsetek Wind Turbine Technology is estimated to reduce the levelled cost of wind energy by up to 15% (mainly by CAPEX reduction). In comparison, the expected effect of all known and unknown technology improvements until year 2025 is estimated to 5.5 % (ref. KIC InnoEnergy 2014: Renewable energy costs: Onshore wind).

Norsetek and wind energy

Wind is an available and efficient source of clean energy across most of the world.  Wind energy seems to be essential for economic growth and political stability in combination with a strong increase of renewable energy supply.

The wind turbine technology of today is based on a structural layout for small size units. And then scaled, incrementally improved and even taken offshore.

We sincerely believe new wind technology is required in order to efficiently break the increase of CO2 and the forecasted climatic destructions.

Norsetek has made preparations for new technology which will provide lighter, larger and more cost efficient range of wind turbines.

Norsetek is currently building a pilot wind turbine for demonstration of our new, protected and light wind turbine technology.
