The Department of Wind Energy of the Technical University of Denmark and independent Norwegian research organisation SINTEF have signed an agreement to improve their networking. In the future, the two research groups intend to work together to advance various aspects of offshore wind energy, including network development, wind farm control and the improvement of substructures for offshore wind turbines.

With the partnership, the parties want to focus on the industrial challenges for offshore wind energy and provide a common stimulus for research and development necessary to find better and cheaper solutions.

Peter Hauge Madsen, Head of Department at DTU Wind Energy, on the new partnership: "This partnership is a big step in the right direction. It gives us an obligation to cooperate and coordinate in some important areas. At the same time, we get a common roadmap for research in the three selected areas. There is no doubt that international cooperation will become even more important in the future and we are therefore pleased and proud that we are able to conclude this cooperation with SINTEF, which has strong competencies and activities on offshore wind energy."

Norway also welcomes the partnership, which explicitly does not rule out further agreements with other partners in the future. John Olav Tande, Chief Researcher and Research Director at SINTEF Energy explains: "We know DTU well from many jointly successful projects related to wind power, and we are now taking a natural next step to enhance the cooperation. I am proud of and pleased with the agreement we have concluded with DTU Wind Energy, and I look forward to the further cooperation. DTU is a world leader in wind energy. At the same time, we also have strong competence in the field, which means that we can achieve a better result and benefit the industry through the partnership."
