Sirris plays an important role when it comes to research and innovation in the Belgian offshore wind industry. In 2010 the Offshore Wind Infrastructure Application Lab (OWI-Lab) was set up aimed at supporting Belgian companies in this relatively new industry which are active in technology developments which contribute to reducing the levelized cost of energy (LCOE). Besides multidisciplinary innovation projects the OWI-Lab also make a unique testing and measuring infrastructure available to facilitate current projects with data and insights. In the port of Antwerp, the home base of OWI-Lab, a unique climate chamber was set up to test components of wind turbines or other machines with very large dimensions in extreme temperatures and climatological conditions.
