WindCoE had a project meeting on the 23-24th of March at the University of Tromsø in Narvik. Participants in the meeting, except for the host, were Novia UaS, Umeå University, Vaasa University, Tampere University, SeAMK and Luleå University.
University of Tromsø have special research facilities for studying wind energy in cold climate. Except for the low speed wind tunnels they also have cold climate chambers.
The project meeting started with a visit to the UiT Wind Tunnel Lab.
The wind tunnel is used for measuring in aerodynamic studies; how the air moves around solid objects, turbulence and pressure.
