Onshore wind

Wind energy is becoming more and more widespread. Till now, more than 100 GW have been installed globally, of which 99 GW are onshore. Installed capacity is expected to reach 1000 GW by 2020, of which 95 will be onshore installations. Ramboll has more than 25 years of experience with wind energy.

Projects

Neuadd-goch Bank wind farm environmental impact assessment

We acted as lead consultant in the preparation of an environmental impact assessment for the proposed Neuadd-goch Bank wind farm, based on a 12-turbine layout, to be located north of Newtown in mid Wales. Key aspects considered included visual impacts, noise and local ecology. Transport issues also needed to be addressed, as the local authority was concerned about the cumulative impact of the various wind farms in Powys.

Mynydd Portref wind farm environmental impact assessment

On a site adjacent to the existing Taff Ely wind farm in south Wales, a new 11-turbine complex at Mynydd Portref was developed for Tegni Cymry Cyf, though it has now changed ownership. Ramboll's specialists undertook an environmental impact assessment for the project, covering such areas as nature conservation, cultural heritage, archaeology, landscape, noise, electromagnetic effects, and various other impacts.

Windmills at Hundhammarfjellet in Nærøy, Norway

Hundhammerfjellet wind farm

Hundhammerfjellet Wind Farm is established as a wind farm for developing wind turbine technology relevant in very rough climate conditions, especially high wind speeds and turbulence. The developer is a Norwegian power company, NTE AS, and the turbine manufacturer is ScanWind Group AS, now part of General Electric (GE).
