About Wind Energy
How It Works?
Wind power is energy that’s generated by harnessing the power of the wind through wind turbines. It’s a great alternative to burning fossil fuels (like coal), because wind is clean, doesn’t produce greenhouse gas emissions and there’s lots of it. At present, it’s the cheapest large-scale renewable energy source
Ovid Wind Power Plant is the first wind plant in Odessa Oblast with 9 General Electric 3.6 MW turbines with a hub height of 131.4 m and a blade diameter of 137 m. Together with the blades, The height of a single turbine is 200 m which is two times taller than iconic Rodina-Mat monument and higher than any other constructed buildings in Ukraine.
Their height lets the turbines capture stronger winds, but they can start generating electricity in light breezes around 10 km/hour, reaching full output in winds of around 46 km/hour. The turbines capture wind energy within the area swept by their spinning blades. The area swept by the blades of one turbine is 1,5 hectare which is approximately equal to the area of 35 basketball courts.
The blades, in turn, drive a generator that produces electricity to export to the grid. At full capacity, wind turbines can generate thousands of megawatt (MW) hours of electricity.
Benefites of Wind Energy
Source of renewable energy
It does not contaminate, it is inexhaustible and reduces the use of fossil fuels, which are the origin of greenhouse gasses that cause global warming. In addition, wind energy is a “native” energy, because it is available practically everywhere on the plant, which contributes to reducing energy imports and to creating wealth and local employment.
