About Lab Antwerp
Our laboratory in the port of Antwerp houses a unique climatic test chamber tailored to industry needs. The large interior dimensions (10.6m x 7m x 8m testing space) and more than 150 tonnes of weight capacity allow for testing heavy machinery or validating multiple prototypes in one test run. Different machinery like wind turbines components, off-highway vehicles, construction and mining machinery, electrical grid infrastructure, aerospace components and military equipment are often required to survive and operate under extreme temperatures and climatic conditions ranging from artic cold, to tropical heat and/or dry heat desert conditions. This unique testing infrastructure is designed to test this machinery for every possible climatic condition on earth in order to ensure reliable and save operations in these harsh environments.
Our Antwerp site also houses the ‘Offshore Wind Infrastructure Application Lab’ (OWI-Lab). This is an R&D initiative which aims to initiate and support innovation projects in relation to offshore wind energy, with partners like Agoria, VUB, KUL and UGent.
