Wind Turbines

NEL - National Wind Energy Centre - Test SiteNational Wind Energy Centre

Our UK test site is the National Wind Energy Centre.  Located in the heart of Europe’s largest onshore wind farm (in the west of Scotland to capture the Atlantic weather systems), the site offers high average wind speeds and complex terrain.

Our grid connections can accommodate significant generated power levels and 18 test pads for every shape and size of small wind turbine. We have the capacity to support formal MCS test programmes or manufacturer’s research & development needs.

Wind Turbine Testing

We carry out wind turbine test and certification for wind turbines 50kW or less.  You can choose to bring your device to our established test site, or we can help identify a suitable site of your own.

Wind turbine tests include:

  • Power Performance
  • Acoustics
  • Loads measurement
  • Design evaluation
  • Electrical conformance

All tests area in compliance with IEC 6140-22 (Wind turbines – Part 22: Conformity Testing and Certification).
