Completing a Wind Power Plant
Wind power, changing the present of energy to support the future. Wind is an inexhaustible resource that is active both day and night, and wind power is attracting more and more attention as a form of reusable energy that can support the future.
Example launch: Rokkasho Village Wind Power Plant
Wind power development with consideration for wind conditions, the power transmission environment, and the ecosystem At Japan Wind Development, we gather our group’s technology and expertise to develop environmentally friendly wind power facilities that enable stable operation in the long term. One such facility is Rokkasho Village Wind Power Plant.
Installation location selection conditions
- Year-round wind activity that is suitable for power generation
- Wind energy is proportional to the cube of the wind speed, therefore the stronger the wind, the more power the wind turbines can generate. When selecting a site for wind turbines, it is preferable that it has even slightly favorable wind conditions.
- Allows transporting/unloading of wind power equipment
- It is necessary to secure a conveyance route with roads and bridges that allow the transport of huge, heavy towers and blades that may reach 35 meters in length.
- Connectability with power-transmission lines
- The electric power generated by the wind is transmitted via power-transmission lines. Because wind power is a form of clean energy driven by natural wind resources, the power output fluctuates depending on wind conditions. Interconnection with the existing electric power system is necessary to provide a stable supply of electricity.
- No impact on the surrounding environment
- It is essential that the wind power facilities do not impact the ecosystem of endangered species.
