Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My current rule of thumb is that you can pack at least 10 MW per sq. km.
You need 7-8 rotor diameters in the prevailing wind direction, but can get away with 5 in the other direction.

With current rotors around 110-130M for 4-6MW turbines, you can have 2 per sq.km.; with the coming generation (150m rotors for 6+MW turbines), you'll get more or less the same)
