Happy 10th Birthday Bladefence!

Written by Jo Spencer

BD 10 years

Ten years ago Bladefence was founded by Joni Alasaari & Ville Karkkolainen and quickly became a leading service provider for Wind Turbine Blade Maintenance across Europe. Within 6 years Bladefence Canada was established, breaking into the North American market and most recently Bladefence USA, both entities proving to be as successful as the first.

 

Starting with a single Blade Technician in a van and growing to more than 100 team members who continue to contribute towards Bladefence’s tremendous success, serving more than 100 customers across 16 countries.

 

We have remained true to our mission over the past decade, focusing on offering high quality blade service and changing the common practice of reactive and expensive wind turbine blade repairs towards shared risks, preventive maintenance and fixed fees.

 

Some of our finest moments include completing a world recording breaking up-tower repair of an 8m tip section on a Vestas V90 in Sweden and the innovation of our blade repair habitat, the ‘Bladefender’ allowing us to extend the repair season for many of our customers.

 

And on that note, we extend a big thank you to all of our loyal supporters and customers, and to our fantastic team who are all working tirelessly for our continued success. We remain as proud as ever of what our amazing team has built so far and look forward to what we can achieve in the future.

 

Long live Team Bladefence.
