Flow modelling and layout

Long-term wind distributions and wind flow models
Speak to an expert

Using state of the art software and modelling techniques, our expert analysis team creates long-term wind distributions and wind flow models to produce a wind energy density map across a proposed wind farm site.

This in turn allows us to predict the annual energy yield from a proposed wind turbine layout, and also to quantify the wake loss, wind shear, turbulence and extreme wind characteristics of the site. This detailed wind regime information will inform decisions on turbine selection and allows us to optimise the turbine layout to maximise energy yield without reducing turbine life.

Wood Group also has a dedicated environmental team which works alongside our analysis experts to provide wind farm layouts that are within the environmental and planning constraints of the site.
