The nacelle test facility is being built by Lindoe Offshore Renewable Centre (LORC) with
cooperation from industry heavyweights Vestas, Siemens and Dong.
twin-berth facility will be able to carry out different tests on a nacelle
simultaneously and simulate the performance of a turbine as part of an array.
“Over a period of six months we can
carry out stress tests on the nacelle equal to 25 years of operation,” claims a
LORC will next week open an advanced
welding centre that aims to develop laser-welding techniques for thick steel
structures such as wind foundations and towers.
These would be faster, more precise and
more economical than conventional weld methods, it claims.
LORC, a former shipyard, was founded in
2009 by major players in the offshore renewable sector, including Vestas,
Siemens, Dong and Vattenfall.
