Setting the Standard: Wind Turbine Blade Testing 

Realistic, repeatable and robust

About Moog

For years, the structural testing of wind turbines has been defined by a limited set of standards, not taking larger and more advanced blades into account.

 

At Moog, we have used decades of testing experience to create high-performance test systems for both on-shore and off-shore turbine blades, delivering realistic and repeatable movement that would be experienced in the field of operation. Our systems ensure that the latest blades are tested to the highest standards, allowing you to deliver consistent results.

Taking Blade Testing to the Extreme for DTU

For the Technical University of Denmark, Moog developed a unique testing solution that could excite wind turbine blades in two directions at a time, allowing larger blades to be tested more quickly and accurately.
