Gurit was last week of January announced as a finalist in the Wind Energy Category of the JEC Innovation Awards for its GL certified Blade Repair System, Renuvo™.

The Renuvo™ Blade Repair System offers a fresh and novel approach to the blade repair market, addressing many of the practical issues that have prevented more effective and expedient maintenance programs. Addressing damage arising from production, transportation and in-field use, the Renuvo™ Blade Repair System provides the solution. 

A wider weather window for repair has been achieved by the working temperature range starting at +5°C. Traditional wet laminating materials must normally be used above +15°C as they can suffer from bi-product and handling issues. Summer and Winter grade versions of the Renuvo™ MPS (Multi-Purpose System) and Renuvo™ PP (Prepreg) are available to cope with most conditions. 

The Renuvo™ product range has transformed the conditions for repair by using UV light from the Renuvo™ Lamp Technology to cure materials in minutes. A spot lamp is available for simple maintenance repairs with a higher intensity product available for deeper structural repairs using Renuvo™ PP. Both lamps are available exclusively from Gurit. 

The Award nomination was given to Gurit and its partners Renewable Advice, Johnson and Allen and Sadechaf and Clearstone. 

The JEC Innovation Awards have been running since 1998 and every year reward the best composites innovations in terms of technical interest, commercial potential, partners, financial impact and originality.
