Can anybody help me how to find wind turbine blade geometries and specifications or whatever statistics that is related to wind turbines?
I myself googled but didnt find anything interesting

James, this paper is a good place to start for the NREL / UAE turbine test program:

Here's another related paper:

Good luck with your search!

I remember many years ago the NASA GA (general aviation) aerofoils were considered good candidates for wind turbines. You could look on the Garrad Hassan web site also. Designing your own profile will require a lot of work and care, and consideration of off-design behaviour, and smoothness of coordinates.

you are right
I am not going to design my own blade. I am just trying to find a wind turbine blade (wing) geometry with its drag/lift data and then simulate the flow over it.
I have not found anything yet
