Ojaküla wind farm is located in Lääne-Viru, Estonia. It was in fact brought online in 2013 and is owned by FreEnergy.
It is near Viru-Nigula Rural Municipality, near Kunda.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
The very best destination for something such as Ojaküla would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine FreEnergy like FreEnergy involved if Ojaküla was not built near local demand or transmission capaViru-Nigula Rural Municipality, near Kunda.
During the planning stages the Ojaküla wind farm would’ve been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. However, Ojaküla wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Site info around Viru-Nigula Rural Municipality, near Kunda is a major factor in the ‘development’ final decision Winds around Viru-Nigula Rural Municipality, near Kunda are evaluated for at least a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits more quickly at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more distinct near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and obstructions.
Generally, the increase of wind speeds with escalating height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, boosts the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this is not always the situation in hilly areas.
Ojaküla turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is elevated in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to every turbine site.
