It has installed an autonomous measurement station for wave, wind and solar data in Guinea’s capital Conakry
New Delhi: Germany-based renewable energy firm, SINN Power, has initiated the second phase of renewable energies project in Conakry, the capital of West African nation Guinea. It is gathering data to evaluate the renewable energy potential of the area.
“The feasibility study was initiated in mid-October 2018. In this phase, a proprietary measuring system will be installed at the previously selected site, which will record wave, wind, and solar data,” the firm said.
According to the company, the evaluation of the collected data would be one of the main components of the feasibility study. “By creating a site-specific energy profile, a recommendation for a renewable hybrid system that is ideally adapted to the customer’ needs can be made,” it added.
The parameters measured with the sensors were the wave amplitudes, wind direction and speed, as well as solar radiation.
“During a first visit in the summer of 2018, first discussions about a local renewable energy supply were held. Furthermore, a geographical survey was carried out using 3-D analysis in order to check the suitability of previously designated sites,” the firm said.
It then selected the most suitable location by evaluating the collected data.
The firm said that the aim of this feasibility study was to make a site-specific recommendation for a renewable hybrid system.
