“Georgian International Energy Corporation” (GIEC) is delighted to highlight becoming a step closer to its first wind farm project pre-feasibility phase completion. On 6th of January, 2012 GIEC has installed and commissioned an 80 m meteorological mast providing reliable and bankable data for wind farm design at our prospective wind farm site.
Till now the data collection is 100% recording site-specific characteristics for wind speed, direction, temperature, pressure and other for the past 11 months.
In the near future, analyzed 1 year data will be used to generate wind resource map by means of simulation tool WaSP. As a result, various alternative layouts of wind turbines will be considered with respect to maximization of Annual Energy Production, Environmental and Social Impact Issues and technical infrastructure availability.
