History

Megavind was founded in 2006, when the Danish Government presented a report on promoting environmentally effective technology and established a number of innovative partnerships. 

The partnerships are intended to strengthen public-private cooperation between the state, industry, universities and venture capital to accelerate innovation in a number of green technologies. The partnership for wind energy was called Megavind.
 
Since 2006, Megavind has therefore been the catalyst and initiator of more and better testing, demonstration and research strategies within the field of wind power in Denmark.
 
In 2012, the “Østerild – National Test Center for Large Wind Turbines” was inaugurated on the basis of a Megavind recommendation. This land-based coastal location in the north-western part of Jutland makes it possible to test and demonstrate wind turbines up to 250 meters tip height and 16 MW nominal power in wind conditions similar to those to which wind power plant are exposedoffshore in the North Sea.
The test centre is an important element in the Megavind mission to ensure that Denmark maintains and further develops its position as the hub of leading companies and research institutions within the field of wind energy.
