Prototype blade projects
In 2013 SSP Technology executed a 7 MW blade project in partnership with Samsung Heavy Industries including:
– blade design
– tooling and mould manufacturing
– production of test blade
– prototype blade set
– execution of static and fatigue testing
This was done within a very short timespan, which is an evidence of SSP Technology’s ability to meet the “time to market” demands.
As of 2016, SSP Technology’s 83.5 m. blades/Samsung Heavy Industries’ 7 MW turbine becomes:
“The Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine”.
The turbine has been acquired by The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (ORE). ORE is the UK’s flagship technology innovation and research centre for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.
ORE notes that “The Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine” is: “the world’s most advanced, open access, offshore wind turbine dedicated to research…”
