Experts in Icing
The formation of ice on the blades of a wind turbine is a major and often overlooked problem. In countries with cold climates, this leads to large operational losses for turbine owners, unstable security of supply and huge risks to people and property in the vicinity of an iced-covered wind turbine. Borealis Wind was established in 2016 to solve this problem.
The BorealisWind Ice Protection System provides a unique and patented solution that equips wind turbines with an internal ice protection system to prevent and remove ice buildup. The innovative solution utilizes lightweight FabricAir fabric ducting to ensure that airflow reaches the tip of the blade to prevent and shed ice buildup.
Joining a Global Leader
FabricAir Canada, Inc. was established in Waterloo, Ontario in May 2023 and in June 2023 Borealis Wind was acquired by FabricAir. The combination of the two innovative companies increased the suite of solutions available from FabricAir while expanding BorealisWind‘s ability to help cold climate wind farms around the world to maximize their wind turbine performance
