6. Assumptions and inputs to be provided by the Client
It is assumed that the Client shall be responsible for providing
the inputs listed below:
- Arrangements of access to sites to be considered and rights to use land for measurement stations, including all necessary approvals (e.g. by aviation authorities and other relevant authorities).
- Arrangement of protection against vandalism of measuring stations.
- Ownership and responsibility for equipment while on site – including covering costs for repair or replacement in cases like theft, damage during transport or erection, vandalism, lightning or other damage.
Preparations for installation of the measurement station(s), including:
a) Customs clearance (covering all costs, taxes duties, etc.)
and transportation to site of masts and equipment
b) Local works (e.g. including technical specification, tendering,
contracting, supervision), including:
(4) Guard house
(5) Construction of mast foundations
Installation of measurement station(s)
(1) Erection of mast(s).
(2) Instrumentation of mast(s).
(3) Operation, guarding, data collection/downloading and data distribution.
d) Assisting workers
- Provision of topographic maps in a scale between 1:20,000 and 1:50,000 in paper sheets or in digital form.
- Provision of data from nearby long-term meteorological stations if selected for the study.
- Local transportation of KenTec staff on missions, including car and driver for site visits.
- Dismantling of stations and removal of equipment and foundations after completion of the measurement program (all equipment supplied is the property of the Client).
7. Results and Reporting:
A detailed installation report will be prepared by KenTec after the installation.
The result of the studies will be brief written reports describing our findings.
These will include an analysis and evaluation of the input data, estimates
of the wind climate at hub height for the turbine positions and estimates of the gross and net (including wake losses) power production of each turbine and of the entire wind farm.
In addition, ruggedness indices for the wind mast position(s) and for each turbine position will be calculated and possible implications for the modeling accuracy will be evaluated.
An estimate of the overall uncertainty of the results will also be given,
as well as recommendations for any future measurements or assessments.
