The GL accreditation allows certification testing to be carried out in-house by Hexcel, avoiding the need to subcontract the work to other approved test houses.

Its entire test lab at Duxford, Cambridge (UK) has been accredited and certified by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) for the mechanical and analytical testing of wind energy products - as unveiled on the 6th of June 2011.


As part of the accreditation process, Hexcel’s qualification testing facilities were audited for high standards of testing expertise and a professional approach.  Hexcel’s rich portfolio of products and services, from research and development to materials manufacturing, has been further enhanced with the addition of certification testing.


The Hexcel  test lab has more than 15 test machines carrying out mechanical testing from 5kN to 600kN frames and includes two robotic test frames.
