The manufacturer-independent service providers seebaWIND Service GmbH monitored since May 15 wind turbines Nordex N80, with a total output of 37.5 MW wind farm in the Norwegian Havøygavlen about 50 kilometers south of the North Cape. Because of wind speeds often 35 to 40 meters per second and quickly changing directions is one of the northernmost wind farm in the world, particularly in the winter months to the most demanding world.
The plants with a total building height of 120 meters are designed for wind speeds of four to 25 meters per second and produce in a total of 90 million kilowatt hours of energy, enough to meet the needs of more than 25,000 households. Per DSL connection to the modern long-distance control center in Osnabrück monitored seebaWIND service the wind farm every day of 16 clock in the afternoon to 8 clock in the morning and all day on weekends.
