Four turbines in the Silkainen, Jäneskeidas wind farm


From 2019, windPRO contains a database of more than 500 existing wind turbines in Finland. WindPRO integration by EMD is based on two sources: Positions of all wind-turbines come from a database with basic geodata produced by the National Land Survey of Finland. The positions were supplemented with metadata on wind farm project information and turbine manufacturer. These data are from the Finnish Wind Power Association (Suomen Tuulivoimayhdistys) and Ethawind.

Usage Notes

  • The database was derived from geodata accessed in January 2019
  • Turbine types are not only industrial grade, but also smaller domestic turbines and classic/historical wind turbines exist in the database

Availability From within windPRO

  • Import data: Is done by accessing the drop-down menu in windPRO: 'Data' -> 'Online WTG Data'
  • What data are available? WindPRO will parse the available and relevant data - and add it to the WTG Object. WindPRO will also write the available metadata into the 'Description' tab of the 'Existing WTG'-Object.

The wind farm data in this dataset is not detailed enough to allow a mapping to the windPRO WTG catalogue. As such the imported WTG-object will be created at the correct position with the following description of the object:

  • Not found: <Manufacturer> - <Rated Power> - <project name>

(Depending on the availability of the metadata-information about this particular wind turbine location)
