Focused on the 2020 goal of 50% renewable energy, the Ministry of Energy and Water and the board of Electra were very keen on implementing cleaner sources of energy and the Areia Branca wind farm project was the most attractive renewable energy project to be developed in the island of São Vicente.
The main goal of the “Feasibility study and micrositing of Areia Branca wind farm” project was to conduct a feasibility study and micrositing of Areia Branca wind farm in São Vicente island – Cape Verde.
The “Feasibility study and micrositing of Areia Branca wind farm” project includes the following: wind speed measurement campaign for over a year; technical and economic feasibility of the installation of new wind farm; micrositing of wind turbines allowed to assess each turbine position, and thus to study the energy generated; and finally monthly reports of the studied wind farms.
