Wind assessments are fundamental elements in every wind energy project development. The reliability of their results is essential for the investment‘s economic success. Being an accredited and certified company (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005) Wind Minds has the competence to deliver to clients this key information. Wind Minds forecasts energy yields, identifies likely challenges and provides recommendations on how to handle them. In the assessment process raw wind measurement data is checked and analysed by means of sophisticated computer software. A digital model of the area is created which is validated by existing data about the local wind conditions and is then subject to further calculations. For the modelling of complex sites CFD software (3D calculations) is applied.
Wind Minds maps wind patterns and produces physical flow models of given wind farm sites, which are used to determine the most suitable positions for wind turbines. For clients planning to purchase an existing wind farm, Wind Minds provides expert opinion regarding the quality of existing wind yield reports. Wind Mind`s expert wind and yield assessments are accepted by banks all over the world for financing purposes.
