At a Texas wind farm, large EPS blocks are used to support 30 meter long fiberglass blades prior to installation. The blades are lowered on to the foam blocks, workers inspect the blades for imperfections, and prepare them for installation into the generator. The foam blocks work perfect because they provide enough cushion so as not to damage the fiberglass, they can be trimmed in the field to be form fitting, and they provide enough support to keep the blades off the ground and at a worker accessible height.
