2021 Component Innovation Awardee: Siva Powers America

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Siva Powers America earned a Competitiveness Improvement Project (CIP) Component Innovation award that will enable the company to evolve its 250/50 wind turbine design, discontinue its existing 13.4-meter wind turbine blades, and develop new 14.4-meter blades. These longer blades, which have additional extenders at the hub, will increase the rotor diameter to 35 meters, allowing for improved energy production at sites with lower wind resources. A collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) includes a redesign, build, and on-site structural test for the new prototype blades. This will ultimately allow Siva Powers America to pursue recertification of the SIVA 250/50 to meet international standards.
