Denmark: Sirris Wins Best Scientific Poster Award at EWEA 2012

The Sirris initiative won the „Best scientific poster“award at the EWEA 2012 event yesterday.

The prize has been awarded for the company’s state-of the –art testing at the Belwind offshore windfarm under the flag of OWI-Lab.

Namely, in October, after a couple of offshore training days, people from Sirris and VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel – BruWind) performed the first offshore measurement campaign. The application lab was contacted by North Wind NV to acquire the damping value of an offshore wind turbine which is mounted on a monopile foundation. In order to be able to do so a structural vibration measurement had to be performed in the low frequency domain (<0,5Hz).
