SOPCAWIND PROJECT IS SETTING UP !!

The SOPCAWIND project aims at developing a new service achieved through the development of a software tool for optimal wind farm design based on a large and heterogeneous set of digitalised data containing information from different fields (wind climate, geography, environment, archaelogy and social-economy), that will be treated, validated, standardised and converted for this extent.

The installation of wind farms has grown exponentially in recent years, and it is expected to continue growing due to Governments' concern about climate change and environmental care.

Two main services will be developed in the project: The Sopcawind Data Pool for consulting any data stored in the system and The Sopcawind Tool for windfarm optimization.

The project is expected to end in may 2014.
