GE’s Power Conversion business has signed a turnkey contract with the Lindoe Offshore Renewables Center (LORC), a Danish center for testing renewable energy technology, for the construction, commissioning and handover of facilities to test wind turbine nacelles with an output power of up to 10MW.

The Lindoe Nacelle Testing project (LNT) will be located in the Lindø Industrial Park on Funen. It will be ready for first tests in 2014. The function tester will incorporate GE’s drivetrain, grid simulation, control systems and foundation work. It is comprised of medium-voltage switchgear, transformers, inverter system DDPM (direct drive permanent magnet) motor, HMI (human-machine interface) and foundation. GE will carry out the installation, commissioning and remote service for the project. The new nacelle tester will enable LORC to test the functionality and performance of wind turbine nacelles by using a specially designed adapter that enables the turbine hub and all field operational software and hardware to be included in the test. The test bench has a modular design that will enable it to be adapted to future needs.
