    our Patents

    We never run out of patents

    With over 190 patent families to our credit, LM Wind Power is amongst the pioneers of technological advancement in the wind industry. Patents help safe-guard our market position and give us freedom to work with innovations for the future, and thereby offer our customers the newest technologies.

    LM Wind Power received its first patent back in 1968 for a special conveyor used to transfer live fish into a lorry. Since we began developing wind turbine blades in 1978, we have patented more than 190 inventions. The applications, of course, became more frequent as our development activities expanded.

    Most of our current patents are within these fields:

    • Lightning protection
    • Blade aerodynamics
    • Blade and rotor design
    • Production technology
    • Blade monitoring systems
    • Service and inspection systems
    • Logistics

    Ideas: our most important raw material 
    The innovation and patents department at LM Wind Power have implemented a special Idea Management System, which helps employees come to the fore and share their new ideas. Chosen ideas are offered financial backups for experimentation. Our objective is to generate at least 80 completely new, well-considered ideas every single year.
