Kintech Engineering was contracted to install what was to become our first meteorological met towers for controlling 6 separate photovoltaic solar farms for Iberdrola (a total of 18 meteorological masts). Some of them with fixed structures and others mounted on dual axe sun trackers. The biggest of the solar farms (located in Abertura, Caceres) with 20MW was at that time the world’s biggest solar farm with double axe sun trackers.
As part of the Benban project in Egypt, Kintech Engineering supplied instrumentation for a solar resource assessment campaign. The measurement station was designed for a complete solar resource campaign including autonomous power supply, intelligent on/off system, sun tracker and pyranometers from Hukseflux. The EOL Zenith data logger, equipped with GPRS communication and GPS synchronization, was […]
Two new wind farms will be built in Jämtland and Västernorrland counties, northeast of Östersund in Sweden. Björkhöjden wind farm will have an installed capacity of 270 MW and will start operations in two stages. Ögonfägnaden wind farm with its 99 MW will be completed as early as 2014. A total of 123 wind turbines […]
Very proud to inform that Kintech Engineering supplied wind resource equipment for what will now become Europe’s largest onshore wind project to date – 1 GW windfarm near Trondheim. Kintech Engineering was contracted by a consultant to supply wind measurement instrumentation including data loggers, remote GPRS communication, and complete set of sensors for a total […]
This project is a joint venture between Fred Olsen Renewables and Finnmark Kraft AS. It is located in the municipality of Kvalsund, County of Finnmark. Based on a 180 MW layout, the production is estimated at 558 GWh, corresponding to the electricity consumption of roughly 27,900 Norwegian households. Kintech Engineering was appointed by a consultant […]
The project is being developed by the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) and Masdar. The electricity generated from the project will be supplied to the Unified Electric Grid in Egypt thereby replacing electricity that would otherwise have been generated from conventional power plants using fossil fuel. The project will be implemented in cooperation between […]
The SAMCA business group undertakes an ambitious concentrating solar power project in Spain. Their mission, to study the conditions of direct radiation at different latitudes of the Spanish geography (Aragón, Castilla la Mancha, Castilla León, Extremadura and Andalusia). Kintech Engineering was involved in this project from the very beginning completing the installation of 13 stations for […]
