Carbon Composite Technologies (CCT), a subsidiary of Augrid Global Holdings Corporation has signed a global licensing agreement with Convection Strategies (CSLLC).
Both partners have been working together for about two years in order to create marketing literature and perform physical testing of several composite fiber architectures.
Their work will be presented to several major wind turbine blade manufacturers, according to a release. The principals of CSLLC are former Price Water House Coopers (PcW) consultants who have well established major contacts in the Wind Energy Industry.
Both companies note that tests conducted by a certified third-party multi-national testing company indicate that their patented processes provide a more efficient and less-expensive alternative to production methods available currently.
Licensing agreement between CCT and CSLLC is giving results already and many domestic referrals have been made due to this alliance.
CCT has been introduced to several major wind turbine companies in China and it now hopes to aid businesses with its patented technology that allows the manufacturing of 100 meter and larger blades.
These blades form an important components in wind farms being deployed in the oceans because larger blades provide more electricity with a fewer number of towers.
CCT has patented process for construction and curing and the company notes that it allows for the blade to be manufactured as one piece and cured without the use of an autoclave.
This process has the ability to significantly reduce the time and material costs, and this result in significantly less expensive final product.
