The site for the WPP has been chosen considering a positive wind potential assessment, as well as effective equipment delivery logistics and opportunity to use the Tsimlyansk HPP existing power infrastructure for power distribution.
Project implementation is planned as part of renewable electric generation support mechanism. Wind monitoring is used to determine exact wind power potential and to identify generating equipment parameters and optimal location.
Data collection and analysis will be carried out within a year on various altitudes involving a wind measuring unit with installed anemometers and other weather monitoring instruments. This unit is assembled using modern technologies that guarantee its full autonomy and environmental safety.
The weather monitoring data and feasibility study results will lay the foundation for the decision on the investment project implementation for the WPP construction. Wind monitoring will be carried out as part of renewable energy development program within the company's Climate Adaptation Strategy.
