Solute Ingenieros-NRG Patagonia: a new 1.5MW Wind turbine

Last year, the Argentinian Company NRG Patagonia with National University of Patagonia San Juan Bosco, presented a Project for the development of a high power wind turbine in the FITS Energy framework (Funds of Sectorial Energetic Technological Innovation). This funds are managed by the Science, Technological and Productive Innovation Minister through the National Agency of Scientific and Technological Promotion.  

These funds pursue to encourage public-private consortia to present innovative projects with the aim of solving technological problems that ultimately improve the competitiveness of the industry.

This consortium presented a project to build a 1.5 MW wind turbine, with variable speed generator, a pitch control system to limit the power and to work as break system, grid-connected and tower height of 80 meters. This wind turbine will be Class II, striving to accomplish high efficiency in performance of the machine in all the country and not only in the region where it will be developed, to work in optimal conditions with average wind speeds of 7-8 meters per second approximately.

The project was awarded by the National Agency of Scientific and Technological Promotion receiving a grant of 24.000.000 Argentinian pesos (2.160.000 euros approximately).

For the development of the project, NRG Patagonia initiated contacts with Solute to secure it as its reference as a consulting company along the project. The conversations succeed a month ago and, one week ago, the kick off meeting was held in Comodoro Rivadavia (Argentina).

The tasks to be performed by Solute´s engineers in collaboration with the engineers of NRG Patagonia and the National University of Patagonia San Juan Bosco will be the design, calculation, verification and prepare for international certification of the wind turbine.

This project reaffirms Solute Ingenieros´ image as a worldwide engineering consulting firm thanks to its knowledge and experience acquired along its history.
