Rooftop turbine installation in NY city
Second Wind, a leader in wind measurement systems, announced that Boreal Renewable Energy Development is using its Nomad 2 Wind Resource Data Loggers to help bring wind power to New Yorkers this year. The site is being considered for a rooftop turbine installation that will contribute to New York’s energy needs and add a powerful symbol to the city skyline.
On behalf of partner Williams Building Company, a full-service construction firm based in South Yarmouth, Mass., Boreal is assessing wind speed and direction for possible wind turbine placement on the roof of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in New York City. The assessment will also help determine the optimal location for the turbines.
The VA Medical Center rooftop turbine project is one of many urban rooftop wind turbine installations that Second Wind’s wind measurement technology has helped make possible. Nine turbines installed in 2009 atop the Boston Museum of Science helps power the Museum’s operations and stands as a symbol of the Museum’s commitment to renewable energy education.
Boreal, an Arlington, Mass-based renewable energy developer with expertise in solar and wind, is also no stranger to landmark wind measurement projects. Boreal is using Second Wind’s measurement technology in a feasibility study for the Kraft Group, owners of the New England Patriots — to determine whether a wind turbine could help Gillette Stadium meet its energy needs. The company works with a multitude of different clients to determine the best strategy for effectively installing wind and solar energy. They have particular expertise working with government clients and are a licensed GSA vendor.
