  • 1. RENEWABLE POWER 42CAPA031/10/2010 RESOURCE ASSESSMENTS FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECTS
    • Resource assessment is critical for the development of a successful wind or solar power project. The detailed evaluation of the wind regime and solar irradiation at a power project site enables accurate energy yield and financial projections.
    • Hatch’s expertise was recently strengthened through the acquisition of GPCo, a leading international consulting firm that provides wind engineering services, installation and operation of meteorological monitoring stations, wind resource assessments and project development support, and solar and technology consulting.
    • Hatch provides a full range of resource assessments for renewable energy projects including:
    • Site prospecting and identification
    • Meteorological mast installation and operation
    • SODAR and LYDAR installation and operation
    • Full wind and solar resource assessments
    • Rigorous quality control of wind and solar data
    • Detailed uncertainty analyses to deduce (P50 and P99 Energy)
    • Photovoltaic (PV) system modeling
    • Wind farm and PV layouts and optimization
    • Analysis of visual and noise impacts
    • Evaluation of electricity generation
    • Financial analyses (with RETScreen or Hatch’s advanced tools)
    • Project development support including land permitting, community relations
    • Due diligence review.
    • ACHIEVEMENTS
    • More than 250 measurement campaigns completed using 50-m, 60-m, 80-m and 100-m towers, both tubular and lattice, tilt-up or assembled by crane
    • Conducted more than 10,000 MW of wind project feasibility studies including energy projection, micrositing, and visual and sound impact assessments. Supported the development of more than 1300 MW now under contracts (PPAs) with Hydro-Québec, Ontario Power Authority, Nova Scotia Power, New Brunswick Power, Maritime Electric and ISO New England
    • International project management and energy assessments in Senegal, Mexico, Ghana, Vietnam, South Africa, Gabon and the Bahamas
    • Authored key modules of RETScreen International and provided training throughout Canada, in Korea, the Netherlands, Ghana, Lebanon and Serbia
