Technical Visit 2: Østerild

Østerild, The national test center for large Wind turbines

In Wind, it does not get bigger than Østerild, which is the national test center for large Wind turbines. The test center has eight wind turbine sites where both Vestas and Siemens have their newest ~15 MW offshore turbines located. The guided tour starts and ends at the visitor center. The guide enthusiastically tells the story behind the Center and the Danish wind turbine adventure. After the guided tour, a lunch box will be served and visitors may enjoy touching and seeing a 63 m long wind turbine blade or walking up a 14 m (1/10) tower section, which gives a great view of the site.
