At Etha Wind, we have deep expertise in wind farm optimization, which means maximizing production while taking noise, flicker and other environmental aspects into consideration. This allows us to increase the value of the project. Based on our experience, we can nearly always improve the profitability of a planned wind farm by updating the existing layout.
Flicker studies are a central part of the permitting process. By ensuring that flicker levels are limited, the project owner also ensures that the permitting process goes smoothly. Flicker calculations are typically needed in both the EIA, Land Use Plan and Building Permit phase.
Etha Wind helps you get the most out of your wind farm. The wind farm layout has a direct impact on the farm’s performance. An optimized layout can bring a substantial amount of added value to the project by minimizing wake losses and maximizing net production.
Noise assessments are central part of the permitting process as a project can only receive permitting approval if it is compliant with the regulatory limit values.
Photomontages, ZVI and 3D models
Our 3D model can be considered the next generation visual impact assessment tool, as it gives an interactive prediction on how the landscape will be affected by the wind farm. Photomontages and ZVI (Zone of Visual Impact) studies are prepared in the permitting process as well, in order to visualize and evaluate the visual impact of the wind farm.
