Wind power plants are based on the use of natural wind and conversion into electrical energy. These facilities are located both on land and at sea. The primary factor in a determination is the feasibility and applicability of the plant as the proposed wind power plant is the presence of a good wind resource.
The use of wind energy is an alternative to non-renewable energy sources. With the development of technology, the problem of increasing energy demand and depletion of resources due to this has emerged. The use of wind energy to shed light on this problem is a very green approach. In addition, as in all energy production sectors, there are some environmental impacts in wind power generation. MACOM provides expert staff to manage these environmental impacts.
Prior to the installation of wind power plants, it is necessary to know the site selection, whether the wind resource is sufficient for the energy, how much energy it will provide as a result of the installation of this power plant, the report containing the details of the project, the project management and the monitoring program after the power plant is installed. In addition, environmental assessment of the wind power plant is also required. MACOM provides consultancy by considering environmental impacts and mitigation measures to minimize and prevent environmental and social impacts caused by wind power plants. Especially, shadow flicker and the noise that can be emitted from the different units of the power plant has an important environmental and social impact. MACOM Environment and Energy provides a reliable support for their causes and reduce these effects.
MACOM Environment and Energy provides the best service to manage these two important problems caused by wind power plants. The noise that will occur during the operation of the power plant and the levels of this noise are very important. Noise can be caused by different reasons. With engine starting, there may be noise from the units in the engine or noise from the wings of the wind turbine. This has an impact on social life as well as on environmental impact. Even if the statutory permit is set at a distance of at least 300 meters, it may generate enough noise to affect social life in the long run. In order to take and minimize the measures to reduce this impact, MACOM works for you and creates noise evaluation reports.
Noise modeling studies of wind power plants should be carried out in order to identify noise, determine the effects and determine the level of noise. MACOM Environmental and Energy offers a quality service with many years of experience in modeling. MACOM works carefully with modeling experts to provide a professional perspective and engineering services for your facility.
Shadow flicker that is another important environmental impact of wind power plants is when the sun’s rays touch the blades of the wind turbine, it cannot pass behind the blades, creating a shadow behind the turbine blades. Each time the turbine blades rotate, the shadow changes direction by following the direction of the blades. As a result, the wind power plant can be a problem for people living in the around of the plant. In order to determine this effect and to observe its effects, modeling studies are carried out by MACOM Environment and Energy.
Your projects are always presented to you by evaluating the national and international legal framework. MACOM Environment and Energy, which has been carrying out modeling and impact assessment studies in local and international projects for a long time, is well equipped to evaluate the impacts of wind power plants.
