A company sets up the infrastructure for a planned wind farm in Quezon
For its upcoming 50 megawatts (MW) Alabat wind power project, renewable energy company Alternergy has constructed a meteorological mast in Alabat Island, Quezon.
According to a statement released on Wednesday by Alternergy, the company’s plan to build a wind farm along the country’s eastern seaboard during the amihan season is consistent with installing its most recent met mast.
The 80-meter NRG systems met tower, according to Alternergy’s Chief Technical Director Knud Hedeager, will measure the local wind resource.
Over the following two years, the met mast will “confirm the strength and capacity of the wind resource,” according to Hedeager.
Hedeager said that the Alabat wind power project site has an average wind speed of more than 7 meters per second and cited statistics from the Global Wind Atlas as support. The wind resource in Rizal, where Alternergy has its 54-MW Pililla wind farm, is comparable.
“Our Alabat wind power plant is located on the strategically selected Alabat Island. Alternergy seeks to transform a natural resource into a dependable renewable energy source by creating a wind project in a location that fearlessly faces the perpetual ‘amihan’ northeast monsoon from the Pacific Ocean, according to chairman Vince Perez of Alternergy.
In order to pursue wind-generating projects on the island, the renewable energy company constructed a total of 10 met masts in Luzon.
The 1,370 MW of additional wind, offshore wind, solar, and run-of-river hydro projects that Alternergy hopes to build over the course of the next five years are included in the 50 MW Alabat wind power project.
