The impossible dream made possible

The above photograph shows the turbulence field behind the Horns Rev 1 offshore wind turbines.  Unique meteorological conditions on 12 February 2008 at 1300 hours resulted in the wind turbines creating condensation (i.e. clouds) of the very humid air, thus … Continue reading
