Haselünne wind project was set up in Lower Saxony, Germany It was completed in 1999 and is owned by Projekt GmbH.
It is near Haselünne.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best location for a project like Haselünne would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Projekt GmbH like Projekt GmbH involved if Haselünne was not built near local demand or transmission capaHaselünne.
During the planning stages the Haselünne wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around Haselünne are examined for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits swifter at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most dramatic near the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also 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. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing increases placement, specially in hilly areas.
Haselünne turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each turbine site.
