Abstract

MegaCentre Planning Project (MCPP) is an initiation of the Finnish industry operating on the wind power area. The planning project was launched and managed by Moventas Wind Oy.The project aims at strengthening the technology position of the participating companies by founding a broadly-based experimental research platform supported by virtual modelling, which would combine the competences of both industry and research. The goal of the MCPP project was to design a globally leading research and development facility - MegaCentre - for the full-scale development and validation of next generation wind turbine technologies. Wind energy-related research program were investigated based on literature surveys and interviews. On the basis of the results obtained a strategy is provided on how and which research programs the MegaCentre could offer applied research services.
