The Lindoe nacelle testing project will be located on the island of Funen, eastern Denmark. It will be ready for the first tests in 2014.
GE said the tests would include its drivetrain, grid simulation, direct-drive permanent magnet generator, and control systems. It will also include an adapter enabling the hub and pitch control to be tested.
Speaking about the decision to award the deal to GE, Ove Poulsen, chief executive officer of LORC said: "GE provided us with a technical solution that best fits the requirements for this project.
"Users will be able to carry out a full range of tests on their equipment without having to adapt their turbine software or hardware."
