Wind farm layout design

Wind farm layout design

DNV GL offers constructive support to deliver clients through a complex process.

Designing a wind farm is often a complex and iterative process. In the early stages the focus is on identifying the approximate size of the project and spotting any “show stopping” issues before too much expense is incurred. As the development process progresses, the focus changes to identifying in detail all the issues which may influence the final size and layout of the project, and to optimise development within those constraints – with the twin goal of minimising risk and maximising the return on investment. DNV GL provides a comprehensive service to support clients in the design of both onshore and offshore wind farms – at every stage from initial development to detailed design.

DNV GL has extensive specialist technical expertise in relevant fields, such as:

• Site constraints analysis
• Geotechnical evaluation
• On-site micro-siting
• Infrastructure layout
• Noise calculation
• Visual influence assessment
• Electromagnetic interference evaluation
• Shadow flicker assessment

Since offshore wind farm projects are often more complex than onshore ones, e.g. with regard to infrastructure and noise assessment, DNV GL’s unparalleled expertise in the design of offshore wind farms is particularly valuable in such projects.

DNV GL’s multi-disciplinary team combines a broad range of expertise in meteorology, wind engineering, wind turbine technology, geographical information systems and environmental studies. This enables DNV GL to provide you with the best possible project design solutions – not least thanks to extensive field expertise gained through many, many gigawatts of wind project experience. Detailed information on case studies or the areas of expertise listed above is available on request.
