R&D delivers several test benches to the newly opened LORC centre
In close collaboration with General Electric (GE), R&D is one of the key suppliers for the newly opened test centre LORC on Lindoe.
Denmark is one of the world's leading suppliers within the wind energy industry in terms of both the production and testing of wind turbines. Along with the consortium partner GE, R&D is one of the world's leading companies within the development of test benches for offshore wind turbines. Combined, GE and R&D are developing seven out of the approximately ten test benches which are currently produced globally. "We have been working within this field for several years and we are very proud to be the world's leading specialists in this field," Morten Storm Pedersen says, Owner and Chief Technical Director at R&D.
R&D is very skilled and works incredibly professionally and competently with the projects.
The idea behind the seven big test benches which R&D and GE have developed for the testing of wind turbines and wind turbine components is that all parts of the test benches are equally important. "Our strength is that we deliver complete solutions," Morten Storm Pedersen says. "We see the test bench as a whole and deliver everything from foundation to the individual components and subsystems such as the software systems. Combined, this increases the reliability and the quality of the performed tests."
For several years, R&D has been collaborating with Vestas and LORC (The National Center for the testing of wind turbines) and is thus the supplier for LORC's newly opened test centre on Lindoe.
Ove Poulsen, CEO of LORC, is certain as to why R&D is one of the world's leading companies in this field. "R&D is very skilled and works incredibly professionally and competently with the projects," Ove Poulsen says.
"Furthermore, they have a profound engineering capacity and they are capable of delivering the complete facility. Additionally, everything they do is well-documented. We have been very satisfied with the collaboration."
