The 107-meter blade has completed the molding process at our factory in Cherbourg, France. The LM 107.0 P will now proceed with post-molding finishing touches, before undergoing rigorous testing and validation to demonstrate its ability to withstand more than 20 years of operation offshore. The 107-meter blade is set to capture the wind for GE’s Haliade-X 12 MW offshore wind turbine, the world’s most powerful wind turbine to date.
BIG news: We've built the world’s largest wind turbine blade – the first beyond 100 meters! Our 107-meter blade will receive post-molding finishing touches, then rigorous testing to prove it's ready for more than 20 years offshore: https://t.co/RrniyKh3WL #WeKnowBlades #HaliadeX pic.twitter.com/HMReTZdjTR
