Edge Wind announces that NREL tests show conformal vortex generator increases production 22.2%

By Paul Dvorak Edge Wind was spun out of Edge Aerodynamix to develop wind power applications of the Conformal Vortex Generator (CVG) tape and tab technology that they developed for aircraft wings and helicopter rotor blades. This technology increases annual wind turbine energy production, provides protection from erosion and impacts, reduces drag caused by leading edge erosion, reduces startup speeds, and reduces vibrations. The CVG tape and tab is installed rapidly by two technicians on a rope rig or aerial high lift with minimal surface preparation.
Edge Wind has worked with the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory to collect data over an eleven month
