Equipment

The Jules Verne climatic wind tunnel has two units:

Thermal unit

  • Heat exchangers , experimental test section recreating a wind reaching 140 km/h with temperatures from -32 ° to 55 ° C, 6 Fans and a maximum electricity power of 1000kW.

Dynamic unit

  • Recreates a wind reaching 280 km/h with 3200 kW fans

Services

  • Analysis at full scale of the equipment behavior under natural wind, storm, sandstorm and wind dust.
  • Analysis at full scale of the equipment behavior under extreme weather conditions: snow, rain, heat and cold.

Example of MRE applications

  • Study of a floating wind turbine with swell simulation.
  • Dynamic solicitations over cables and floats.
