More Haliade-X components arrive for testing

A nacelle for GE Renewable Energy’s Haliade-X 12 MW offshore wind turbine has arrived at the port of Blyth in the UK for testing at Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s facilities.

The nacelle will undergo advanced trials that will replicate real-world operational conditions; it came to the port onboard a Jumbo heavy lift vessel.

This is the second Haliade-X nacelle to be assembled. The first, which is being tested in Rotterdam, produced its first kilowatt-hour (kWh) of power earlier this month.

As part of the Haliade-X global testing programme, Blyth has already taken delivery of one of the turbine’s 107 m-long blades, as HLPFI reported here. A blade also arrived at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) in Boston earlier this month, for assessment at the Wind Technology Testing Centre.
