The NEWECS-45 is the first 1 MW wind turbine in the Netherlands, installed at Wieringermeer near Medemblik. The aim of this demonstration project is three-fold; to determine the cost-effectiveness and reliability of a big wind turbine, to study the effect of such machines on the electricity grid and to study the electromagnetic interference on radio and TV reception. The machine was commissioned in December 1986.
