Turbine Blades

Blades testing

We perform independent structural testing of turbine blades – static and fatigue – in accordance with IEC and ISO standards, enabling blade manufacturers to achieve industry certification.

We opened our first 50m facility in 2005 and a further 100m facility for testing larger turbine blades in 2013.

Tests can be delivered to customer requirements and can include:

  • Determination of natural blade frequencies
  • Modal analysis
  • Post fatigue
  • Collapse assessments
