World Class Test Facilities
The test centres perform tension tests, proof load tests, and pulling tests.
The test centres allows for the optimisation of wind turbines, cranes, lifting equipment, transport equipment, and other machine parts and supporting structures, as the test results can be used to validate the strength of new designs and components.
East Metal has two centres:
This expansion in capacity was made in 2016 and should be seen in the context of the ever larger machines being developed (i.e. the increasing size of wind turbines). these large structures can now be tested adequately before they are commissioned.
