Lars Christian Lilleholt, the Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate, cut the traditional red tape and said:

“A centre of this kind must be functional. It should be used by both DTU and the developers testing the wind turbines, while also serving as a platform from which to communicate information about wind, wind power, and green energy to visitors from near and far.”

Proud president
A visibly proud DTU President, Anders Bjarklev, took the floor after the Minister:

“The test centre in Østerild consolidates Denmark's leading position within energy and wind energy, in particular. This is a world-class accomplishment which we can all be very proud of.”
