DONG Energy and Vestas Wind Systems have entered into a cooperation agreement on the testing of Vestas' V164-8.0MW wind turbine at Test Centre Østerild in Denmark.

Through this agreement, DONG Energy becomes involved earlier in Vestas´ development of the V164-8.0 MW offshore wind turbine than previously envisaged. DONG Energy will now engage in a number of test activities together with Vestas in the prototype at Test Centre Østerild to accelerate the development of the turbine. As a consequence of the enhanced cooperation and early access to relevant test data from Test Centre Østerild, DONG Energy has decided not to build the V164-8.0 MW as a test- and demonstration project in Frederikshavn. The reason for this is that the majority of the tests that DONG Energy were envisaging to perform at the Frederikshavn demonstration site are included in the Vestas planned test scope at Østerild. Vestas expects that the first turbine will be installed and commissioned at Test Centre Østerild during the second quarter of 2014.
