Lapland's fells and highlands feature a notable wind
power potential due to
special meteorological circumstances.
The wind power plants for these sites must be equipped
with special means
against icing and low temperatures.
Icing events monitored on a small test machine are
described and compared with
general load assumptions.
Different means of ice detection and removing ice from
rotor blades are
presented. Low temperature and anti-
icing requirements for wind power plant components and
operation control are
