NoordzeeWind carries out an extensive measurement and evaluation program as part of the Offshore Wind farm Egmond aan Zee (OWEZ) project. The technical part of the measurement and evaluation program considers topics as climate statistics, wind and wave loading, detailed performance monitoring of the wind turbines, etc. The datasets are available in the public domain.
The data considered in this report are taken from a 116m height meteorological mast, including the ADCP. The latter measures, among others, current speeds and directions at 7m and 11m depth. In this report current profiles are characterized and possible daily and yearly patterns are examined.
