Hexcel lab GL approved for wind energy product testing

Hexcel has announced that its test laboratory at Duxford, Cambridge, UK, has been certified by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) for the mechanical and analytical testing of wind energy products.

The GL accreditation allows certification testing to be carried out in-house by Hexcel, avoiding the need to sub-contract the work to other approved test houses. 

The Hexcel test lab has more than 15 test machines carrying out mechanical testing from 5 kN to 600 kN frames and includes two robotic test frames.

Hexcel produces prepregs for the manufacture of composite wind turbine blades. It also supplies fibre reinforcements, laminates, foam cores and gel-coats for wind energy applications.
