Since Ramboll developed the first wind turbines in 1986 we have rapidly expanded our involvement in wind power projects all over the world. Today, our services encompass the entire project cycle from concept to commissioning and the subsequent operation & maintenance period.
With our international, multidisciplinary and wind power specific competencies, we are a full-range service provider in wind power projects.
Our services include:
In our onshore wind power projects we can draw on our local presence, delivering global knowledge locally.
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.
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.
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).
Ramboll has been working on the establishment of Høg-Jæren Energy Park, the first wind power project of many to come in this part of Norway.
