SWAY AS has applied for a test concession from the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate for constructing a test turbine in Naturgassparken in Øygarden (West Coast of Norway). The construction of the prototype will be conditional on financial support from Enova. The wind turbine will have a capacity of 10 MW and a rotor diameter of 145 meters.
The test turbine is among the largest in the world. The turbine is an offshore turbine, but initially SWAY wants to test the turbine onshore for a period of 2 to 5 years. The turbine will be removed when the testing is completed. SWAY is evaluating other locations for testing, but for now the primarily focus is on Øygarden.
