Wind turbine blade testing facility pushes our blades to the max

See How Giant GE Blades Perform “In the Wild”

With the recent news that the total generating capacity of wind farms around the world is now greater than all of the world’s nuclear power plants combined, it’s clear that wind energy is here to stay. But just how tough are those turbine blades? In a recent webisode of the GE series “In the Wild,” host Alie Ward visited LM Wind Power in Denmark to see how the company conducts its wind turbine blade testing. Ward even subjected herself to LM Wind Power’s wind tunnel to see what a full gale force really feels like.

Want to see the outcome of this wind turbine blade stress test? Curious to learn if LM Wind Power’s blades can survive a typhoon’s winds? Check out “In the Wild” below.
