Knowledge Centre WMC is a research institute for materials and structures. one of the main activities are fundamental and applied research on Fibre Reinforced Plastics (FRP) and wind turbine structures. WMC is working for both the European and Dutch governments, as well as for the international industry. WMC develops design tools that are being used worldwide by many of the largest wind turbine manufacturers. Results of our work are published and presented internationally. WMC is actively involved in international standardization committees. For the experimental research WMC has a laboratory for material research and a large test area with a dedicated strong floor enabling testing of structures, such as rotor blades for large wind turbines. Testing machines ranging from 10 to 3500 kN are available for material and component testing, both static and fatigue. A fatigue testing machine with 35 MN is under construction. The facility has its own workshops (mechanical, electro technical)
