DNW powered by the sun

At Marknesse, NLR and HVC have developed a new, large solar park. The produced power is fed into the national grid using the DNW-LLF electrical infrastructure. On 08 July 2024, this largest solar park in the Netherlands was officially opened. This solar park is situated on the NLR/DNW terrain in Marknesse and has 74.000 solar panels with a capacity of 46MWp and is able to supply 43-milion kilowatt solar power.

Launch Ariane 6

DNW is proud to have been able to contribute to a successful and safe launch of the ESA’s Ariane 6 rocket. In 2017, a wind tunnel model designed and manufactured by NLR was tested in the DNW-HST and DNW-SST. The goal of these tests was to characterize the steady and unsteady loads on the total launcher and on the various launcher elements (e.g. boosters) during the transonic and supersonic flight phases.
