In the coming months, Danish wind turbine blade specialist Polytech will begin construction of a new test center outside its domestic market. The new facility is to lie in Sheyang in the Jiangsu province north of Shanghai, China. As of Q2 2022, the 150-meter-long hall will see blade testing with a focus on one of the company's areas of expertise, lightning protection.
Placing a lightning test center in China is a sound move. LM Wind Power no longer builds blades in Denmark, while Vestas' production is also very limited, and Siemens Gamesa only has its offshore turbine blade production left in northern city Aalborg. Conversely, a very large and increasing proportion of blade production for both onshore and offshore wind turbines takes place in China -- which also applies to Polytech's initial move here.
