A cutting edge facility that’s as impressive as it is essential to our success. A 2.2MW motor drives carbon fibre blades which can generate a wind speed of up to 80m/s – a machine so powerful that it’s capable of going 30m/s faster than regulations will allow us to run it. This highly complex facility is paired with sophisticated measurement systems to allow us to meet our allocation of aerodynamic tests in a precise, efficient and cost-effective manner, giving us the insight we need to stay at the top of the sport.
