After 5 years the test field for small wind turbines in Schoondijke will be terminated. During the last year we tested two types hand-build wind turbines and learned a lot about grid connection and installation. Very useful data has been collected on the performance of our turbines; power curves have been determined and high wind… Read more »

After 5 month of operation on the test field in Schoondijke the ILWP 2,4 turbine has been replaced by a smaller Hugh Piggott wind turbine design model with a rotor diameter of 1800 mm.
The first autumn storm of 2013 was a heavy one. Gusts of 151 km/hr were measured. Our turbine in Schoondijke survived and recorded top energy production.
A Hugh Piggott design wind turbine has been installed at the test field for small wind turbines in Schoondijke in the Netherlands.
