The small turbine of 20 kW capacity will be simulated taking into accout the site characteristics of Kozoszki District, in the Gdańsk, at local industrial area, near some factories.
Main drivers to join SWIP
The Pomeranian Province (Pomorskie Voivodeship) is situated in the North of Poland, on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea. The Region borders on the East with the Russian Federation. The province has 316 km of coastline, which constitutes about 60% of the whole coastline of the country. Forestation of the Province is about 37%, agriculture areas 51%. There are good wind conditions in the Region for installation of wind turbines. There is total wind energy capacity installed of ca.300 MW – all inland, big turbines. Small turbines are very rare, some of them are installed in combination of small PVs along the roads or at sport facilities.
There is national RES target within EU 3×20% goal to reach 15% of RES in the energy mix till 2020. Following national goals the Regional Strategic Programme on energy and environment -Effective Pomerania 2020 (2013) assumes 15% RES share in electricity production in roku 2020 in Pomerania Region (9,96% in 2011).
The pilot project for simulation of 20 kW will consider the Kokoszki area – an industrial district of Gdańsk City in Pomerania. SWT location is surrounded by factories and store houses with heights ranging from 10-20m. The area is flat, situated approx. 130-140 meters above sea level. Spatial plan of Kokoszki allows installations of up to 30 m.
SWT will be located on the plot owned by contruction company – Przedsiębiorstwo Budowlane Kokoszki.
Commune Population: 460 tous
Commune Area: 261 km2
Demo Neigbourhood: Kokoszki industrial district of Gdansk City, placed in north-western part of the city.
Climate: moderate with maritime elements.
Use: business, comerce, logistics.
Performance within SWIP
The demonstration of SWIP in Kozoszki District will represent a virtual integration of an 20 kW horizontal axis wind turbine in a industrial environment. The aim of this task is showing a design integrated in a industrial area, which supplies clean energy and including the following solutions to be tested:
New horizontal axis blades design for 20-30 kW SWTs.
New concept of energy generator.
Noise and vibration mitigation solutions.
Wind resource assessment methodology validation for industrial areas.
SWIP Replication potential
Kozoszki District has a unique location close to the sea. This allows the analysis of the new wind turbine design in open areas with sea wind, so it can provide helpful data not only for onshore wind turbines but also for offshore wind turbines. The situation of the place where the demonstrator will be simulated is in an industrial area, which permit the analysis of its integration in this kind of areas. Replicability is one of the aims of SWIP project, so one of the purpouses is the future integration in more complex industrial areas.
The main target within Kozoski Pilot site demonstrator is to simulate the overall behaviour the new small wind turbine designed in the framework of SWIP project,. Moreover, as a long wind resource assessment campaign has been carried out in the location, the new methodology for wind resource assessment in urban areas will be tested here, in order to improve and depurate it during the project execution.
