TÜV Nord has prepared an energy yield assessment for a wind farm in the Philippines for wpd and cooperation partner Triconti ECC Renewables Corporation. The 75.6 MW Aklan wind farm is being built in a hilly area on the north-western tip of Panay Island, at an altitude of between 123 m to 362 m above sea level.
According to wpd, commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2025 / beginning of 2026. The yield assessment was based on wind measurements that wpd and its cooperation partner Triconti ECC had previously collected at the planned site using several measuring masts and LiDAR devices. The combination of two measurement methods and also the correlation among the data sets enabled a picture of the wind conditions at the wind farm’s location. With these evaluations and the CFD modelling, the company determined the wind potential at the respective locations of the planned wind turbines and thus predicted the expected energy yield.
