The Swiss company SGS SA opened the WETC in June at the Tianjin Economic and Technological Development Area in the north-east of the country. At the WETC, the natural frequency, the statics and the material fatigue, as well as other characteristics of the rotor blades can be tested. The centre also offers advice on other questions relating to wind energy technology. The WETC has been certified by China Metrology Accreditation.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
