Denmark lends it expertise to new Norwegian wind energy centre

Aalborg University in northern Jutland is set to play a valuable collaborative role in one of eight new centres that Norway is establishing to bring its environmental research capability up to world class, reports Aalborg University on its website.
 
The Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy is the particular centre where research scientists from Aalborg University will be contributing with their competencies. Professor John Dalsgaard Sørensen at Aalborg University's Centre for Wind Energy comments in a news release that the exchange of information can go both ways:
 
"The interesting thing is that the Norwegians can increase their knowledge based on their substantial expertise in offshore operations in oil and gas extraction. We can learn a huge amount from that. Conversely there are a lot of new things for the Norwegians to learn about wind energy, and we are in a position to contribute with a large amount of Danish experience."
 
Professor Ivar Langen from Stavanger University in Norway is very satisfied to have the participation of Aalborg University in the new centre, which will focus on the placement, operation and maintenance of offshore wind turbines.
 
"It is pleasing that we have gained the money for long-term research into offshore wind energy. I see especially great value in the collaboration we have established with Aalborg University, which has long experience with wind turbine technology," says Prof. Langen.
