2023 has been a transformative year for Bladefence. First, the season has been the busiest for us ever. At the peak of the season Bladefence employed about 200 people worldwide. We expect significant growth for the upcoming years too. Secondly, we introduced the suspended platforms to the North American market. After several seasons of using these platforms in Europe and the successful market entry in North America, we strongly believe in them and will introduce more of them in both markets in the upcoming years.
Thirdly, we have continued to invest in the development of our processes and management systems. As a result, we completed our ISO certification process with the addition of Environmental Management System certification. Bladefence now holds the ISO 9001/14001/45001 certifications globally and will maintain these certifications in the future. We will also continue our efforts to further develop our processes and, most importantly, keep our focus on Health and Safety practices and training.
As the season is closing in the coming weeks and months, we start to shift our efforts on planning the season of 2024. Over the next months, Bladefence will participate in many of the industry events, and we would be thrilled to see you there. The current list is as follows:
- Energy Transformation in Calgary, Alberta on October 24-25, 2023
- Operations, Maintenance & Safety Conference in San Diego, California on February 21-23, 2024
- Wind Europe Annual Event 2024 in Bilbao, Spain on March 20-23, 2024
- CLEANPOWER 2024 Conference & Exhibition in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 6-9, 2024
We are still considering a few other events too and will keep you posted.
In the meantime, should have any blade issues during the winter season, do not hesitate to contact our sales teams in Europe and North America. With our WP-Systems TERRA suspended platforms, we can work even in adverse weather conditions.
I wish you all a pleasant autumn and be safe out there!
