Work is still on-going at the Poul la Cour Wind Tunnel construction site. The building structure is in place and currently the inside components are being installed. Please view this video for a guided tour around the new research facility. 

The video was filmed on June 23 2017. Since then, the fan with a diameter of 4.7 meters has been installed as well. 

With the combination of the size, high flow speed and test possibilities, allowing measurements of aerodynamics and noise all at once, the new wind tunnel will be one-of-a-kind. Due to the size of the test section it will be possible to test not only parts of wind turbine blades, but also other larger structures, like downscaled models of buildings and vehicles.  

The The Poul la Cour Wind Tunnel is built in collaboration with the Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education and Region Zealand and is planned to open for use in the beginning of 2018.
