Wind Technology Testing Center Tour
September 23, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Offshore wind in Massachusetts is taking off as an economical source of clean energy. Vineyard Wind, the first offshore wind project in Massachusetts waters, is slated to begin construction soon. There could be anywhere from 5,000 MW to 10,000 MW built off the coast of Massachusetts south of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket in the future. The MassCEC Wind Technology Testing Center will be a part of the offshore wind story.
Wind turbine blade testing is a critical factor in maintaining high levels of reliability and evaluating the latest technological developments in airfoils and materials. Blade testing is required as part of turbine certification to meet international design standards including IEC, GL and DNV. Meeting international standards allows developers to mitigate the technical and financial risk of deploying mass-produced wind turbines.
The WTTC offers a full suite of certification tests for turbine blades up to 90 meters in length and is the largest commercial-scale blade testing center in the nation. WTTC is innovating and constantly improving testing methods to better represent field operations in the lab and to improve testing efficiency for wind industry partners.
See how the science happens!
