Capturing measurements for European Wind Atlas programme

This summer the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA) programme will conduct a large measurement campaign in Sweden to minimise the uncertainties of wind field prediction in complex terrain.

Run by Uppsala University and Weathertech Scandinavia, the campaign is the Swedish contribution to the NEWA project, in which similar large scale experiments are run at a number of sites in Europe. The wind resource will then be determined and a wind atlas produced and become freely available.

The University will use ZephIR 300 to measure turbulence and mean wind speeds. ZephIR 300 delivers measurements at heights up to 200m, confirming hub-height resource as well as wind shear, veer and turbulence across the rotor. Uppsala University’s Campus Gotland is a leader in the education of wind power project development and management.
