Vadenrod wind project was installed in North East, Aruba It was finished in 2009 and is owned by NuCapital.
It is near Curaçao.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
A great position for a project like Vadenrod might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum chance of sudden effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine NuCapital like NuCapital involved if Vadenrod was not built near local demand or transmission capaCuraçao.
Before construction, Vadenrod was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Vadenrod wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Local winds are frequently examined for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps made before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits more quickly at higher altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more evident near land and is changed by landscape, surface and hurdles.
Commonly, the rise of wind speeds with escalating elevation follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this isn’t necessarily the way it is in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Vadenrod are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
