The largest site in Europe for turbine prototyping and certification was officially opened on 14 October. The Dutch testing facility, on Wageningen University grounds and operated by Ecofys Wind Turbine Testing Services, can service the latest generation turbines with tip heights up to 200 metres. The site provides wind turbine testing services for ten wind turbines with a combined installed power of 30 MW.
The new test site provides infrastructure, wind measurements and wind turbine measurements required for turbine certification and is expected to contribute significantly to further innovation in the industry. The accredited measurement services are provided by Ecofys in collaboration with windtest grevenbroich GmbH.
