GL Garrad Hassan has released WindFarmer 4.2. The software facilitates the layout of wind farms to maximise the power produced while minimising the environmental impact.

Users of Geographic Information System (GIS) systems benefit from WindFarmer 4.2 now supporting a wider range of Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) Shape files, giving more options for importing object locations (turbines, houses, viewpoints, etc.), boundaries and terrain contours. The new version provides developers with new tools for the design and optimisation of regular turbine layouts, and improved modelling of array effects between large wind farms. The environmental engineer will find an updated shadow flicker analysis that uses map projection information to automatically detect longitude and latitude and True North - Grid North deviation. Met data analysts will benefit from its expanded MCP+ Module that provides more versatile data displays and analysis, for example allowing a choice of the number of direction sectors and the scaling of TAB files. Further the 4.2 release adds Arabic and Polish language versions to the previously supported ten languages.
