Gamesa has developed Bladeshield, an anti-icing paint solution for wind turbines. The company says the new system is apt for use in its own 2.0 MW-2.5 MW and 5.0 MW onshore and offshore platforms, as well as in other manufacturers' products, and also features anti-erosion and durability properties optimized for cold regions.

The Bladeshield system is the result of three years of research under the broader Azimut project for the development of offshore technology, which was sponsored by Spain's Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology.

In addition to Bladeshield, Gamesa recently unveiled two systems for detecting and eliminating ice on blades that have been developed for Gamesa’s suite of 2.0-2.5 MW turbines. The company says it is also developing another ice prevention system in collaboration with Finnish technology provider VTT for its platform of 5.0 MW turbines.
