Sustainability is an important consideration when building the future. Generating sustainable wind energy plays a big part in this. Effective wind farm security is therefore essential for the efficient running of the construction project. Therefore, our UFOs offer security while seven Nordex turbines with over 8m elevated foundations are being installed in Torvenkylä, Finland.
The construction of the foundations for the Torvenkylä wind farm in Finland started in 2022. The project is located in the municipality of Kalajoki in North Ostrobothnia, approximately 150 km south of Oulu. Energiequelle Oy, the Finnish subsidiary of Energiequelle GmbH, is installing seven Nordex N163 turbines, each with an output of 5.7 MW and an over 8-meter concrete elevation that will be built on top of the foundations to improve the wind farm’s electricity production.
Large and expensive materials and equipment are used during the construction of wind turbines such as the cranes and the parts of the turbines. These materials often contain expensive copper cables which are susceptible to theft. In addition, windmills are placed in rows, which means that these types of high-impact projects usually involve complex planning that is influenced by many factors. Therefore, effective wind farm security is essential for the efficient running of the construction project.
The installation of the wind turbines supplied by Nordex started in August 2022. Once fully operational the park will produce around 120 GWh per year, supplying around 25,000 households and avoiding approximately 84,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Possible theft can lead to major material and immaterial damages, such as delays in the production process and in general, the project. With our mobile security cameras, supporting products and the Kooi Alarm Center, we ensure optimum security of your wind farm 24/7, so that you can focus on your project. Wondering if your security is sufficient? Our specialists are happy to tell you more about effectively protecting the expensive materials on your site during a free safety check, where we determine what wind farm security is needed during construction.
