The Danish Business Authority and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) are preparing an expansion of the test centres at Høvsøre and Østerild. The Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs presented a Construction Act in the Danish Parliament on 21 March 2018. DTU therefore calls wind turbine manufacturers to indicate their interest in leasing one or several test stands at Test Centre Høvsøre in the municipality of Lemvig and at Test Centre Østerild in the municipality of Thisted. Leasing of new test stands is subject to the adoption of the Construction Act. 

Purpose of the Call for Expression of Interest 
The purpose of this call for expression of interest is to make interested parties aware of the expected opportunity to rent stands for test of wind turbines and to assess the interest for the test stands. DTU also wishes to receive input for suggested requirements to these test stands, such as rental conditions, framework for research collaborations and requests to exchange existing rentals with others so that DTU has the opportunity to include such requests in the design of the tender process.

Deadline is June 5th 2018.
