Beaumont wind project was installed in Pays de la Loire, France It was in fact brought online in 2012 and is owned by Zephyr, Kleinkraftwerk Birseck AG (KKB AG).
It is near Issé.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great position for a project like Beaumont could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum chance of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admission to local demand or transmission capaIssé.
During the planning stages the Beaumont wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. However, Beaumont wind farm might have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been vital to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around Issé are examined for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits sooner at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more evident near land and is altered by topography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated 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 may not be the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Beaumont are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to each and every turbine site.
