Aerox was founded in 2014 to design and produce coating systems for the protection of windturbine blades. Aerox is a spin-off company of QMC, which has been present in the market of polymers and composites for different industries more than 25 years.

 

Aerox’s customers are the windturbine blade manufacturers using the coating as a key raw material in their process. The solution provides a significant cost reduction for windturbine blade manufacturers that spend a huge amount of time, up to 300 hours, in finishing operations on the surface protection of the blade during their process. The coat provides a major improvement in the quality of the finished surface after demoulding, reducing significantly the cost per blade. This way AEROX contributes to sustainable develop of Windenergy.

 

Aerox has already created high qualified new jobs and has planned to create up to 10 direct new jobs in the area of R&D and business development and at least 15 new indirect jobs before 2016, all of them in the EU. In 2014 this solution reached a turnover of EUR 0.3 million, while the projected turnover for 2015 is EUR 1 million.

 

Aerox technology has been validated by two of the top EU Windturbine blade manufacturers, in more than 400 blades. The wind turbine manufactures are increasing their production in 2-digit terms, due the increasing demand of wind energy worldwide, thus preventing more than 1billion ton of CO2 emissions by 2020. Our solution helps them achieve this goal by contributing to the essential reduction of  the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of this source in the EU.

 

Aerox is one of the CleanLaunchpad Spain finalists in 2014 and currently in the Climate-KIC Accelerator Valencian RIC  programme.
