Financial performance of a wind project is tremendously sensitive to wind resource. Therefore, accurate wind data analysis and prediction of annual energy production of a wind farm, performed by a credible, experienced organization, is a crucial element for modeling financial return of the project over its lifetime.

Azure can undertake wind resource assessments according to international standards and issue bankable energy yield reports. Such a study typically comprises the following steps:

  • Acquiring wind, topographical, layout and turbine data:
  • Site visit:
  • Short term wind data selection and processing
  • Long term wind data selection and processing
  • Long term correlation
  • Wind turbine layout design
  • Wind flow calculation to obtain raw annual energy production
  • Losses estimation
  • Uncertainty estimation
  • Annual energy production at P50, P75, P90 and other confidence levels

Whether for technology joint venture, supply, licensing or training projects, inter-cultural technical communications is a key challenge affecting the efficiency and success of cross border cooperation. For selected projects and partners, Azure will assign its engineers to act as dedicated resources leading technical exchanges within controlled IP boundaries.
