BVT Holding GmbH & Co. KG and ROMO Wind Deutschland GmbH announced today the signature of an agreement on improving the wind farm performance by measuring and correcting the yaw misalignment with the iSpin technology in the wind farm Sustrum-Renkenberge in Niedersachsen / Germany consisting of 16 wind turbines of the type NEG Micon NTK 1500/64/80. After a demonstration project in 2013 proved that the correction of yaw misalignment led to the envisaged performance improvement of 3,67 % on those wind turbines equipped with the iSpin technology, BVT decided to proceed with the yaw misalignment correction campaign on further 16 wind turbines in the wind farm Sustrum-Renkenberge.
