Innovative, Compliant, Quality Assured

The wind energy sector is witnessing an increased need for carbon fibre, particularly in the production of wind turbine blades. At Kestrel, we specialise in providing carbon fibre reinforced pultruded profiles designed specifically for spar caps of both existing and next-generation longer wind turbine blades.

Our laminates are crafted using cutting-edge innovative, advanced process technology, ensuring the required strength, stiffness, and lightweight properties essential for enhancing the productivity, reliability, and efficiency of wind turbine operations.
