Bladena's technology platform originates from more than 10 years of research and development work at DTU-Risø in Denmark. Amongst others, this work formed the basis for 7 patents, which was taken over by Bladena, when it was launched as a spin-out from DTU in 2011. In 2018 Bladena has 11 patents.
Each patent provides a valuable structural enhancement to wind turbine blades, which can be deployed in new blades as well as retrofitted in existing blades.
Bladena's technology platform is carried forward via intense participation in research and development projects. During its brief history, the company has already successfully secured financial support for research and development projects (EUDP) - which are sponsored by the Danish government and participating industry partners - worth more than € 8 million.
