A 61.5-meter blade designed by Denmark-based manufacturer LM Glasfiber has been named one of five finalists for The Confederation of Danish Industry's Product Prize 2007.

The blade, which is the longest on the market today, features a rotor diameter of 126 meters, and the three blades together almost cover the length of two football fields, according to LM Glasfiber. The blade is capable of capturing energy from the wind corresponding to a nominal effect of 5 MW. The company expects the 61.5-meter blade to play an especially prominent role in the offshore market and the growing trend of customers turning to larger, more energy-efficient wind turbines.

The prize winner will be announced on Sept. 27 at the organization's Business Summit in Copenhagen with 1,000 Danish business executives in attendance.
