Lindoe Nacelle Testing (LNT) will be the most advanced and realistic testing of wind turbine nacelles in the world. LNT will be fully dynamic electrically and mechanically and be able to simulate the lifetime of a wind turbine by stress-testing the whole system. Testing can increase the stress levels and frequency of occurrences in order to discover design weaknesses and calculate the system’s lifetime. LNT will test the first nacelles in 2013.
Lindoe Welding Center (LWC) is being established to overcome the economical challenges in producing large labor intensive welded structures, such as wind turbine towers and foundations. The centerpiece of LWC will be the largest commercially-available fiber laser welding device in the world. Based on decades of experience with steel treatment and welding methods in shipbuilding at the Lindoe site, the Lindoe Welding Center of LORC focuses on research and innovation in welding methods.
Lindoe Testing and Demonstration of Foundations is the part of LORC which focuses on developing new and smarter production methods for well-known substructures and foundations for offshore wind turbines, as well as developing the next generation of foundations for offshore installations in deep water far offshore.
Lindoe Mechanical Testing is a range of different test facilities for partial testing of components. For example, LORC is establishing a test facility for the testing of lubricants and bearings.
