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 NREA and DANIDA and is located approx. 200 km south east of Cairo on the Red Sea coast approximately 80 km south of the Suez in a desert area with no settlements in the direct vicinity. Because of the high level of importance of this project and the remote region, Kintech Engineering was appointed by a consultant to supply 3 complete turnkey wind measurement stations consisting of 90 meter lattice masts (installed by one of our partners) equipped with EOL Zenith data loggers, satellite modems for remote communication and high quality anemometers and wind vanes from Thies Clima.
Leading Korean wind developer TQD Energia Co. Ltd uses the Geovane Metmast (Geovane MM) to get rid of offsets in their wind direction measurements. For this specific project TQD Energia Co. Ltd. detected a misalignment of the wind vanes with respect to True North of 14 degrees. The economic consequences of a wind farm layout
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
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
