World Class Real World Testing and Certification Site

Group NIRE is the partner of choice when it comes to real world testing and certification due to their unique relationship with local utilities, National Wind Institute and companies like DNV-GL. The energy research facilities at the Reese Technology Center have evolved into one of the largest energy research facilities in the world.

The National Wind Institute at Texas Tech is based on a strong foundation of more than 40 years of research and education on the impact of wind on structures and human life. DNV-GL unites the strengths of DNVKEMAGarrad Hassan and GL Renewables Certification to provide testing, certification and advisory services.

Group NIRE’s and TTU’s field test site is home to the SWiFT Scaled Wind Farm Test Facility project. This project is funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) in partnership with Sandia National Labs, Texas Tech University’s National Wind Institute and Vestas. The DOE also granted funds to the Center for Commercialization of Electric Technologies (CCET) to deploy a 1 MW/MWh Utility Scale Battery at the site.

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) including industry leaders, have chosen this site to deploy their next generation wind turbines for testing and certification for the North and South American Markets.

Group NIRE is looking forward to expanding the site to include the Global Laboratory for Energy Asset Management and Manufacturing (GLEAMM).
