Consultancy on wind resource over the time of development of a wind farm project

Site: 300 MW project in Spain Scope: initial estimate of wind resource advice on measurement positions optimisation of wind farm lay-out input to turbine specifications regular check on measured data independent documentation of wind measurements continuous further development of measurement strategy preparation of wind resource and energy production assessments selection of locations for masts for

3 wind measurements in parallel: met mast, Sodar and Lidar

Site: Black Forest, Germany Results: the vertical wind profile of the met mast showed implausible values data of a Sodar instrument from an external company were also considered implausibe, therefore a Sodar instrument of the manufacturer AQ Systems was used afterwards strong consistency between the AQ Systems Sodar and the Lidar
