The US Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Siemens Energy Inc. have formally commissioned a new 2.3MW Siemens wind turbine at NREL's National Wind Technology Center.

The turbine is the centerpiece of a multi-year project to study the performance and aerodynamics of a new class of large, land-based machines. Under their Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), Siemens and NREL will test basic turbine characteristics and verify new performance enhancing features of the pilot turbine over a minimum of three years and potentially longer. Testing will include a full range of real-world operating conditions, including severe weather. Under the initial phase of the US$ 14 million research program, Siemens will contribute US$ 9 million, NREL US$ 5 million.
