Innovation is in our DNA
While our history is replete with examples of invention and re-invention, our approach to innovation today is targeted and has a clear direction.
As difficult as it is to completely ‘systematize’ something as indefinable as creativity, we have developed a corporate culture that places clear value and direction on novel ideas.
At LM Wind Power we constantly work on new technologies to both enhance performance and push the limits on wind farm location. Some of our most prominent examples are our lightning protection system, high performance leading edge protection, advanced monitoring systems, de-icing and aerodynamic add-on features, along with many more products in the pipeline.
Many innovations originate in our global network of Technology Centers in Denmark, the Netherlands, India, the U.S. and UK, which are staffed by nearly 600 engineers. However, innovation is very much in our DNA across all of LM Wind Power, and is not simply restricted to our product innovations. Innovation for us is holistic, but with a firm focus on making wind compelling, competitive and cost-effective.
