Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has formed an agreement with Dutch R&D firm ECN Wind Energy Facilities to supply a 30MW wind project in the Netherlands.

The Wieringermeer wind test site, which is being extended, will carry out testing to explore issues such as productivity optimisation and grid integration.

Vestas Northern and Central Europe stated in a news release: “With renewable energy increasing its share of the overall energy mix, Vestas works with partners across markets to improve grid integration and plant productivity, hereby ensuring renewable energy continues to grow its share.”
