Low noise levels at Svalskulla wind farm

posted in: Current Wind, cool Ball | 0

Noise measurements have been carried out at Svalskulla wind farm in Närpes, which consists of 5 wind turbines. The measurements show that the noise levels are below the applicable guideline values ​​and action limits for noise and are lower than the levels calculated in the planning stage.

VindIn has allowed FCG (Finnish Consulting Group) to carry out a noise measurement at Svalskulla wind farm. The noise measurements have been carried out in accordance with the Ministry of the Environment's instructions 4 / 2014 ”Measurements of noise level from wind turbines at objects exposed ”.

For the power plants planned today, the guide value at night is 40 dB at 8 m / s, regardless of the residential use. The guide value of 8 m / s comes from the fact that at higher wind speeds, the background noise begins to dominate over the sound of the wind turbines.

Measurements were carried out at the nearest home, 1,1 km from the wind farm. In addition, a measuring point was made just 520 meters from the park. This measurement point was intended to be where the calculated value was 40 dBA, but ended up due to the nature of the properties somewhat closer so a value just above 40 dBA could be expected.

When measuring at the nearest home, the noise level was 31,9 dBA, of which the turbines' share of the total noise was about 29 dBA. The values ​​are adjusted to a wind speed of 8 m / s in accordance with the instructions. This meant that neither guideline values ​​nor action limits for noise were exceeded. The guideline values ​​for low-frequency noise were also not exceeded. After a frequency analysis of the noise, it was found that the sound does not contain a high proportion of individual frequencies, which in that case would be perceived as more disturbing.

At the measuring point located just 520 meters from the park, the sound level 39,6 dBA was measured, of which the turbines' share of the total sound was about 38 dBA. The measured level was thus below the level calculated in the planning stage.

  • We see here that the noise levels we measure when the wind turbines are in operation are lower than what was calculated in the planning stage. We have also noted this in measurements made at our large park of 30 wind turbines on Trattberget in Sweden, says Christina Hillforth project director at VindIn.
  • We have not had any complaints about noise from local residents around Svalskulla wind farm and although we have not been worried about increased noise levels, it feels good that we have now also been able to make measurements that ensure this, continues Christina. These are experiences that both we and the authorities benefit from in the future expansion of wind power plants in the region.

Information about Kärsås

posted in: Kärsås | 0

VindIn intends to construct and operate four (4) wind turbines at Kärsås in the municipality of Falkenberg, Halland County. The park is located about 10 miles east of Falkenberg, on the south side of road 1,5, about 150 km east of Grinnared and about 2 km south of Sjöred. The works will be located within Falkenberg municipality's designated wind farm area, VL1,5 Kärsås, on the properties Kärsås 3: 1 and Asige-Tornared 1: 1.

The area consists of a relatively hilly forest landscape with a significant impact on forestry. The place has a high position with an estimated average wind of about 6,6 m / s, which makes the place suitable for wind use.

The network connection of the park will be to E.on's 130 kV power grid station in Abild. The pipeline will either be dug down at existing roads or placed along the pipeline that runs north of the works.

Status and schedule

At the end of 2011, VindIn submitted the application and environmental impact assessment to the County Administrative Board in Halland County. Subsequently, the application has been supplemented, the opinion has been received and the application has been announced.

VindIn received a decision in June 2013. The decision includes permits to construct 4 wind turbines with a total height of 180 m. If the works are not equipped with such a system, the works may only have a total height of 150 m. The decision has not yet gained legal force, but the case lies with the Land and Environment Court.

Construction of roads and wind turbines is expected to start during the last quarter of 2013 and the park is expected to be operational during the latter part of 2014.

Wind farm Rudet

Wind farm Rudet is located in the municipality of Mariestad, east of the community Sjötorp.

The wind farm is partly located within one of the municipality's designated wind farm areas. Nature is varied and largely consists of production forest with elements of older forest and cultivated land. The proximity to Vänern and the rich bird fauna means that careful investigations of bird occurrence and migratory migration are carried out as well as bat mice inventories. Investigations of natural values, culture and archeology from both the considerations of experience and for scientific reasons also precede the application for permission.

The entire proposed project area has a good wind position and will be able to contribute well to the municipality's goal for renewable energy. The municipality is located within the electric area 3.

Press release: Landowner in Sävar and VindIn AB in collaboration

posted in: Savar | 0

Landowner in Sävar and VindIn AB in cooperation for wind power projects.
18 landowner in Sävar and Holmen AB together with the Swedish basic industry's Wind Power Company VindIn AB have signed an agreement to develop a wind power project between the village Sävar and Norum.

The agreement aims to verify with wind measurements of the area between Sävar and Norum whether the national interest area for wind power classified by the Swedish Energy Agency can be confirmed.

In parallel with the wind measurements that will last for at least one year, a project comprising 15 - 25 wind turbines will be prepared, which means that a complete environmental assessment of the project will be submitted to the county administrative board. The plants planned will have a maximum height of 170 m with an installed capacity of 2 - 4 MW / plant. Depending on the final design of the park, an annual production of almost 150 GWh, corresponding to a consumption of 7 electrically heated villas, can hopefully be established within 500-2 years. All provided that the wind resources can be confirmed and that an environmental permit is obtained. The wind farm will probably be connected to the regional network via the existing switchgear in Sävar.

- We see the collaboration with the basic industry as a great opportunity to use our forest lands for both continued normal forestry and new sustainable renewable power production. We also see it as an advantage that the project can strengthen the conditions for our Swedish basic industry, says the spokesman for the landowners, Nils Kriström.

- For the basic industries, we have found a strong combination and cohesion of landowners who are willing to participate in the development of a potentially very good wind power project. With this project, we hope to be able to contribute to broadening our long-term power supply, actively contribute to the very high national environmental goals and at the same time strengthen the financial base for cooperating landowners and indirectly for the region, says Anders Lyberg CEO of VindIn AB.
