LM Wind Power, a GE Renewable Energy business, has completed the acquisition of the WMC wind turbine blade test center in Wieringerwerf, the Netherlands.

The facility will provide rotor hub testing for new GE turbines and will continue providing blade and other testing, digital tools, research and similar services to the wider wind industry in the Netherlands and elsewhere, LM Wind Power stated.

The company said it plans to expand and develop the center over time, emphasizing that the 23 current employees, comprising highly-qualified experts in composites and rotor blade testing, will be retained to help grow the business.

According to CEO Duncan Berry, the new test facilities will contribute to the company’s research and development capabilities for the design and manufacture of advanced wind turbine blades and other components.
