Amaroni wind farm is situated in Calabria, Italy. It was finished in 2012 and is owned by ERG Renew.
It is near Catanzaro.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A great place for a project like Amaroni could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum chance of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also access to local requirement or transmission capaCatanzaro.
During the planning stages the Amaroni wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Catanzaro is a major aspect in the development conclusion Winds around Catanzaro are examined for at least a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more obvious near land and is altered by geography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Calabrias wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, enhances the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this is not always the situation in hilly areas.
Amaroni turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to each turbine site.
