Wind turbine test site Wieringermeer

The ECN wind turbine test site in Wieringermeer is a worldwide unique research facility that gives further insights in the field of wind farm aerodynamics, wake interaction and wind farm control. The high quality data are used for the development and validation of wind farm aerodynamic models and wind farm control strategies. ECN not only uses the scaled farm to improve its own knowledge but also to initiate other collaborations with national and international partners, coming from research institutes, universities and wind turbine manufactures.
