DONG Energy and Vestas Wind Systems have agreed to collaborate on the testing of Vestas' V164-8.0 MW wind turbine at a test center located in Osterild, Denmark.

According to Vestas, DONG Energy will now partner in a number of test activities in the prototype to accelerate the development of the V164-8.0 MW.

Based on the scope of tests being performed on the V164, DONG says it will no longer build a similar test and demonstration project. The company explains that the majority of the tests that had been planned for its demonstration project are included in the Vestas planned test scope at Osterild.

Vestas expects that the first turbine will be installed and commissioned during the second quarter of 2014. If the tests results are positive, there may be interest in further tests and commercial collaboration between the two companies, Vestas notes.
