Sweco Architects has delivered an EIA of the National Test Center for wind turbines in Østerild (Northern Jutland).
With a new National Test Center for wind turbines, Denmark will maintain their leading position in the field of developing new technology for wind turbines and promote the possibility for an increased production of sustainable energy.
With a new and larger test center the Danish Wind Industry Association and Risø DTU offers the best facilities for the development and testing of new and more efficient prototypes and for the research of the turbine technology of the future.
Hence the Danish government decided that Denmark needed a new national test center, and that the center hadto be established in accordance with a construction act.
The test center contains 7 test turbines with a total height of 250 m inside a specifically designated test zone near Østerild Klitplantage, Thisted, Denmark.
