Wind turbine manufacturer DeWind says it is replacing the blades of five wind turbines at the Wind Energy Institute of Canada Wind Energy R&D Park on Prince Edward Island.

DeWind provided five 2 MW D9.2 wind turbines, which operated for a short time before issues were detected with the blades. After inspections and attempts to repair the blades, it was decided by both parties that the blades should be replaced.

"We have made the commercial decision to replace the institute's blades after initial operation indicated a quality problem that could potentially impact the operational life of those machines," says Young Jae Choi, president and chief operating officer of DeWind.

The company did not provide further details on the issues affecting the blades’ performance.
