In 2007 BVC entered the wind energy market. We were eager for this move due to the challenge of manufacturing large scale, high production tooling. Moreover, we looked forward to becoming a local U.S. contributor to the renewable energy market. To date BVC has produced over 200 utility scaled plugs, patterns and molds for blade shells, nacelles, root rings, spar caps, shear webs, and other ancillary tools. We have integrated electrical resistive heating systems, encoded hinges, hydraulic and manual clamping, and alignment systems in blade shell molds and produced deliverables for blade projects over 250’ in length. BVC offers full commissioning prior to shipment to minimize impact on our customer’s production environment. For non-BVC produced tooling we are happy to provide refinishing, repair and adjustment services. We also offer on site, field support service for tool installation.
