This page explains the main steps of a Small Wind Turbine project. Contact CIRKEL Energy for more information on Solar Projects.

When you decide to put up a Small Wind Turbine, the project will have a number of steps. CIRKEL Energy offer to help you through the process from beginning to end.

STEP 1: SITE EVAUATION & TENDERING

CIRKEL Energy will pay you a nonommittal visit. If you wich to move on in the process, CIRKEL Energy will make a site report, which will give recomended locations for the turbine, and also hold all the technical documents required for the planning process. If you desire, we can order a report that estimates the yearly yield for the turbine, on the suggested locations.

STEP 2: DECISSION & RESERVATION

When you have decided to buy a Small Wind Turbine, we will reserve a turbine for you, and put the installation work into plan, while the planning process is started at the local planning office.

STEP 3: PLANNING PROCESS

You can orders us to handle the planning process. If questions ocour in the process, we will help clarify these.

If the turbine requires permission to grid connect, we will send in an application for this also, in the time frame.

STEP 4: APPROVAL & ORDERING OF THE TURBINE FORM THE FACTORY

When the building permit is given, and the grid connection permit from the grid company, we will order the turbine from the factory, and start the practical work.

If you planning application, or grid connection application is rejected, your reservation can be cancelled. This can be done, when all chances of appeal has been tried.

STEP 5: FOUNDATION WORK & CABLE DIGGING

The foundation is made to digging a hole and mould in rebar and tower mould-in parts.
The ground cable between the building and the turbine is digged into the ground.
Typically, this work is carried out in one day, but is dependant on the local conditions.
It is very important to secure the drive way to the turbine site, enabling access for truck, cranes and other equipment needed.

 

STEP 6: DELIVERY & INSTALLATION OF THE TURBINE

When the turbine is delivered, and the concrete foundation is hardended sufficiently to carry the turbine, the turbine is installed. This work can take up to 2 days. Installation is finalised with a commisioning, where the turbines function and protection system is tested, and the commissioning report is signed of.
The turbine is the ready to hand over to you, and the installation process is finalised.

STEP 7: APPLY FOR A TARIF

If you turbine is entitled to recieve a tarif for the energy supplied to the grid, an application has be to send to the authorities.

 

STEP 8: SERVICE CHECK

Your wind turbine required service in the intervals given by the manufacturer. Most turbines are sold with a 5 year waranty, which depends on the customer maintaining his turbine after the manufaturers recomendations.
