Offshore wind turbine trials approved
The DEA has given I/S Nissum Bredning Vind settlement permit for their 28 MW pilot project "Testbed for new technologies and integrated design". In February 2016, the project was the winner of the DEA's bidding round in the special pilot scheme for new offshore wind technology.
This type of test plant is the first in Denmark and can help to reduce the cost of construction and operation of future wind farms. The project contains important experimental elements for future offshore wind technology and therefore helps to maintain Denmark's leading position in the development and testing of offshore wind technology.
The four wind farms that will be set up and tested in Nissum Bredning, are expected to be ready by the end of 2017.
