Romo Wind will equip all eight Vestas V90 turbines which are installed at the Kittlitz II wind farm with its iSpin spinner anemometer. The ultrasonic wind measurement at the tip of the hub detects all relevant wind data directly in front of the rotor. Repartner Wind, owner of the wind farm in Brandenburg, Germany, plans to install six turbines over 130 metres high nearby in the main wind direction.
The company will use the iSpin spinner anemometers to find out how the current eight Vestas V90 turbines will react when six significantly higher Vestas turbines will be installed. From October 2019, three V126 and three V136 turbines will be installed with the nearest only 700 metres away from the Kittlitz II wind farm. With the measurement data, Repartner Wind can recognise the wake characteristics of neighbouring turbines, avoid unnecessary sector shutdowns and ensure that the turbines continue to operate within the turbulence assessments and the applicable standards.
