Hundhammerfjellet Wind Farm is established as a wind farm for developing wind turbine technology relevant in very rough climate conditions, especially high wind speeds and turbulence. The developer is a Norwegian power company, NTE AS, and the turbine manufacturer is ScanWind Group AS, now part of General Electric (GE).
Ramboll has been involved as project manager for ScanWind Group AS, focusing on practical matters such as progress planning, project follow-up and implementation of project control activities. Furthermore, Ramboll was involved in more technical aspects as development activities with the technical department and implementation of verification tests in connection with IEC verification.
Improving technical solutions
For the turbine manufacturer the project represents a possibility for long-term follow-up on their technology. This will on a continuous basis make it possible to evaluate and improve technical solutions and in this way secure a track record for coming projects.
