WPD wind farm in the Philippines TÜV NORD expert prepares assure yield reports

WPD wind farm, For the Bremen project developer and operator of wind and solar parks wpd and Cooperation partner Triconti ECC Renewables Corporation, TÜV NORD prepared a yield report for one of the first large wind farms in the Philippines.

Yield reports are very important when planning a wind farm in order to Estimate wind conditions at the planned site and calculate the probable energy yields.

Site assessment experts from the TÜV NORD GROUP from Hamburg and Athens worked closely together on this , in order to prepare the technically demanding survey for the project.

Aklan wind farm will be located in a hilly area at the north-west tip built on the island of Panay, at an altitude of between 123 m and 362 m above sea level According to wpd, commissioning is planned for the end of 2025/beginning of 2026.

Because the wind park area is considered complex terrain according to IEC classification, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) modeling was carried out for the project by wind energy experts in Athens. The results of this flow modeling were then used in Hamburg for further calculations.

The yield report was based on wind measurements, which wpd carried out together with its cooperation partner Triconti ECC had previously collected at the planned location with several met masts and LiDAR devices.

The combination of two measurement methods and also the correlation between the data sets enabled a comprehensive picture of the wind conditions in the demanding terrain. With these evaluations and the CFD modelling, the Hamburg site assessment experts determined the wind potential at the respective locations of the planned wind turbines and thus predicted the energy yield to be expected.
