Weather data is critical to optimizing the efficiency of solar power generation. Beginning with site assessment, on-site meteorological monitoring factors into overall project performance and ROI. Weather stations provide reliable information on parameter
Whether you’re generating power for a single job site or hundreds of thousands people, power generation is a mission critical application. Thermal Structures products offer the extreme performance, durability and ease of installation that power generation requires.
The MRP Modular Barrier System has been extensively used at nuclear power stations and decommissioning sites. In the UK the MRP Barrier has been used at a number of nuclear sites to provide shielded storage areas for waste in drums and ISO containers; temporary walls during maintenance operations and refurbishment of cell windows. The MRP Shield has been deployed at Hunterston, Sizewell, Berkeley, Oldbury and Hinkley power stations and at Sellafield and Dounreay.
PV performance measurements under real outdoor conditions are done in may different ways. However, the concept of all performance investigations is to relate the input energy, which is the solar radiative flux, to the output energy, which is the electrical power produced by the PV module. EKO’s Solar Monitoring Stations, referred to as SMS, is the dedicated facility for this type of evaluation.
Farming operations that require heat also benefit from the CHP system. The return on investment will vary dependent on whether there is low or no cost access to wood chips and whether the 45 kWh of power can be fully utilized on site or, if not, what rate the power can be sold to the grid.
In order to assure well-founded decisions in designing profitable solar power plants, the solar irradiance should be measured in the assessment phase. Irradiation is a crucial parameter for site selection and plant design and economics of plant. There are many different ways and technologies to measure the irradiance phenomena that influences the power generation of a future solar power plant. Ammonit’s solutions are designed to meet the latest standards with regard to accuracy and affordability of the measurement.
The U.S. Geological Survey and organizations around the world like BC Hydro of Canada and Mighty River Power in Australia use C Tech’s technology to model the geology and hydrology associated with dams and new hydropower sites.
Prior to setting up a wind farm, the local wind conditions have to be measured for site assessment. The construction of a profitable wind farm demand the most accurate and reliable wind measurement technology. The installed equipment has to perform as precisely as possible as the data quality is essential for designing a reliable and economical wind farm. A small discrepancy in the evaluation of wind speed data drastically multiplies the discrepancy of the calculated wind power.

SolarOne and its local partner first worked closely with Masdar personnel and their contractors to develop a lighting plan that would illuminate the incoming roadway and parking areas around the site offices. Using SolarOne’s LOS (Shoebox Series) fixture for the parking lots and roadways the designated areas are illuminated to an average of over 6 lux during peak hours. SolarOne was tapped again to provide the solution for lighting the Atkins ring road that encircles much of the 6.3 sq. kM city.
Turboden units allow to convert the heat collected by solar collectors into electricity through an efficient thermodynamic cycle. Concentrating Solar Power systems with Turboden ORC can be cost-effective from 200 kW electric, depending on the irradiation of the installation site.

For wind resource assessment campaigns in regions with long and cold winters, special measurement systems have to be designed. The challenges of cold climate regions should never be underestimated. Particularly icing is a problem. The met mast construction and the installed sensors have to be chosen carefully. The instruments have to be properly heated by a reliable power system.
With our long-term experience in wind measurement and our local installation partners we can offer complete measurement systems robust...
