VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- TUV NEL Site will Certify Turbine's Energy Production
Endurance Wind Power (EWP), manufacturer of advanced wind turbines 50kW in size, designed specifically for distributed wind power applications, today announced it commissioned a third turbine for use on a new test site in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.
The primary purpose of the new site will be to authenticate the E-3120 turbine's energy production capabilities and to certify and validate the power curve. Endurance Wind Power has two other test sites, one in Quebec, Canada, and the other in Utah, in the United States.
"It is a unique position for a company in the distributed wind sector to have three separately located, instrumented test units around the world. Our test fleets enhance the depth of our design and development capabilities and provide the opportunity for Endurance to pursue new product testing for design, safety, durability, performance, and low operational acoustics in a broad variety of wind and environmental conditions," said Dr. Daryl Musselman, (P.Eng), VP of Engineering, EWP.
The new site will be established in a third-party testing facility, at the world-class TUV NEL test site. TUV NEL has been a leading provider of research, testing, and technical consulting for more than 60 years. They have some of the most modern and sophisticated test, analysis, and experiment facilities, and an impressive reputation as a worldwide center for engineering excellence and mechanical design.
"As an industry, test sites like these together with the new Feed-In-Tariff's (FIT) program rates further emphasize the demand for reliable and certified turbines for end-consumers. Our third party certification will provide additional consumer security and confidence in the E-3120. This investment will broaden our ability to provide an exceptionally well designed, tested, and certified wind turbine to the market," said Peter Tyszewicz, Chief Operating Officer, EWP.
