Since 2011 OWI-Lab has been conducting acceleration measurements on an offshore wind turbine with a monopile substructure at the Belwind wind farm. The main goal of this R&D measurement campaign was to validate the design with in-situ measurements on the operational wind turbine. In particular the resonance frequencies were of interest to the operator as these can shed light on the soil conditions at the site.
