National City, Calif.-based Knight & Carver Wind Group will collaborate with Continental Wind Power to develop, test and build Continental's new 300 kW Revolution wind turbine blades.

The project will produce 18-meter blades for use in medium-size, distributed wind farms. Craig Robinson, Knight & Carver's senior composites engineer, will serve as project manager. Upon completion, each Revolution wind turbine is expected to generate about 1 million kWh of renewable electricity.

As part of the research and development process, which has been initiated by Continental, Knight & Carver will perform extensive testing, including static, fatigue and life-cycle tests.

The first Revolution wind turbine with blades made by Knight & Carver is expected to be ready for field testing by the fourth quarter of this year. After completion of testing, the company will begin high-volume production.

The wind farms built by Continental will typically consist of five to 25 wind turbines and will supply power to factory complexes, schools, cities, counties, wastewater treatment plants, water pumping facilities and farms.
