U.S. Leads the World in Offshore Wind Turbine Testing

The world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine will have all testing and verification done at Clemson University’s state of the art facility in Charleston, South Carolina. The testing will allow MHI Vestas, the turbine owner, to gain a better understanding of how the technology will hold up over a 20-year lifespan. The agreement will direct as much as $23 million to Clemson University over five years and create dozens of high-tech jobs.
