Integration of a 15MW wind power plant into an island grid in Mauretania

August 18, 2016

Period:  2014


3E has been commissioned by the Société Nationale Industrielle et Minière de Mauritanie (SNIM) to conduct a feasibility study of a 15MW wind farm in the north of Mauritania at the Nouadibou harbour.

The scope of the study includes the wind resource assessment, the grid integration study, the environmental impact study and the economic analysis. Because of the particularly demanding ambient conditions (sand erosion, saline environment) a careful selection of suitable wind turbine technology is of crucial importance.
