  • Wind Energy Growth Market
    Wind energy is on the rise, reaching a power output of nearly 57,000 Megawatts in 2007 and continuing to increase. However, we must continue to focus on ways to build, test, deliver, and maintain wind turbines more effectively. MTS Systems can help by delivering position sensor technology that improves the energy efficiency of the turbines while providing greater safety and reducing maintenance costs.

    A Green Future...
    The call for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is growing throughout the world. Wind power has demonstrated great potential satisfying energy demand with a clean, safe and highly-efficient energy source. At the same time, there is increasing demand for reliable and rugged components because wind turbines are subjected to tremendous aerodynamic forces and continuously changing wind conditions.
