The technology involves the dissolution of the bonding resin in weakly acidic solutions. In the manufacture of a blade, resin converts fiberglass and other polymers, as well as wood and metal parts of the blade structure into a monolithic product that can be used in the production of other commercial products.
In the process of disposal, the blade is immersed in a special solution and decomposes into primary materials, with the exception of the resin, which dissolves.
Using the new technology Siemens Gamesa manufactured the first 6 81-meter RecyclableBlade blades and signed three contracts for their use in wind turbine projects. The recyclable blades will be installed on the wind turbines of the Kaskasi power plant in Germany and on the offshore generators of the French EDF Renewables and German WPD projects.
An estimated 200,000 wind turbine blades will be buried in the ground or otherwise disposed of by 2050.

Flender, which Siemens acquired 2005, produces mechanical drive systems for wind turbines and other power generation sectors, including mining, and oil and gas. It also supplies gearboxes under the Winergy brand.
Siemens is also proceeding with its planned transfer of its 67.1 pct majority stake in wind turbine OEM Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) to its gas and power unit to the new "Siemens Energy" unit, and spin it off in a public listing.

The project's foundations, consisting of the turbines' monopiles, transition pieces and anode cages were fabricated by EEW SPC. Installation of the two 6-megawatt Siemens Gamesa turbines 27 miles offshore, is expected to begin later this spring for commissioning and startup by the end of the year. At peak production, the pilot project will power 3,000 homes.
Also this month, Dominion Energy is conducting ocean surveys to map the seabed of the 112,800-acre lease area where the company's 2,600-MW CVOW project will be built beginning in 2024. These surveys will support the development of the project's Construction and Operations Plan to be submitted to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) later this year.
