Barnes & Thornburg Advises Energy Company Radia In The Development of WindRunner™, World’s Largest Aircraft

The Aircraft Is Specialized To Deliver Larger Onshore Wind Turbines, Radically Expanding The Viability Of Wind Energy As A Low-Cost Clean Energy

Barnes & Thornburg client Radia recently announced its ongoing plans to design, build, and operate the world’s largest aircraft, the WindRunner™ aircraft, as a solution to deliver and deploy more efficient and cost-effective wind turbines to onshore wind farms. At 356 feet in length, which is 80 feet longer than the aircraft that previously held the record for longest aircraft in the world, the WindRunnerTM aircraft will be able to transport large wind turbine blades and other components directly to wind farm locations that are currently inaccessible due to the size of the blades. Its volume is 12 times that of a 747 aircraft. As a result, wind energy becomes a significantly more viable option as a low-cost clean energy for the grid, green fuel production, and commercial power users such as data centers.

Attorneys of Barnes & Thornburg have served as legal counsel to Radia for more than four years, advising on the energy company’s patents, trademarks, corporate, employment, and export control needs.

With more than 800 attorneys and other legal professionals, Barnes & Thornburg is one of the largest law firms in the country. The firm serves clients worldwide from offices in Atlanta, Boston, California, Chicago, Delaware, Indiana, Michigan, Minneapolis, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Philadelphia, Raleigh, South Florida, Salt Lake City, Texas and Washington, D.C.
