"The 4C database is much more comprehensive than we expected – it is easily accessible, updated regularly and contains a wealth of relevant up to date information. This has been a very good investment for us and we recommend it as a must for the Wind Farm Vessel Supply Chain."

Comments The nacelle is the biggest of its kind in the world. Samsung has received POWERS award for the development of the 7MW offshore wind turbine prototype on May 2013, the award consists of GBP 6.04million. Nacelle and drivetrain were delivered to the Narec testing centre in Northumberland in August 2013. During the six-month testing programme of the nacelle, which began in autumn 2013, some of the harshest climatic conditions will be simulated. The blades are being shipped from Denmark where they have been manufactured by SSP Technology. This will also allow Samsung to set up serial blade production in Korea using the mould set developed by SSP. Samsung launched a strategic review of it's offshore operations and has halted its plans to test the drive train at NAREC. correct
