Following successful commissioning, Alstom's 6 MW Haliade 150 offshore wind turbine has started its official type testing phase of Le Carnet, located in the Pays de Loire region of France.

The manufacturer says it will focus on power performance and power quality certification at the onshore site in the coming months.

Alstom says the commissioning phase included a test of all the turbine’s systems at its full generating capacity. The company said the results were in line with model and design specifications.

In addition to the onshore unit, a second turbine will be installed during the first half of 2013 at the offshore Belwind wind farm, located off the Belgian coast. The offshore tests will target specific marine operations and procedures and will complete the technical and product performance, notes Alstom.
