SINTEF Energy Research has conducted a grid compliance test at VIVAs test station at Valsneset. The test was the first trial of a new mobile laboratory for grid compliance testing and was carried out in cooperation with TrønderEnergi and Enercon. The test involved an Enercon 2.3 MW turbine and showed good grid compliance qualities in the turbine.
