Description

Location: PT - Portugal
This technology is currently not used for power generation, but is supposed to contribute to cypacity expansion/replacement between today and 2030. This dataset represents the production of high voltage electricity at onshore grid-connected wind power plants with a capacity of more than 3MW (3MW excluded). It includes operation and maintenance expenditures as well as infrastructure inputs. Wind load hours represent current global average conditions.
At the moment, the class of onshore >3MW wind turbines is approximated with a 4.5 MW onshore wind turbine consisting of the infrastructure datasets for the 'wind turbine construction' and the 'network connection construction'. The wind turbine's parts are defined to be everything except for the network connection, i.e. rotor, nacelle, tower, and foundation.

Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.

Technology

Technology of an Enercon E-112 4.5MW wind power plant modelled with a dataset for the wind turbine (moving+fixed parts) and a network connection each.
See dataset 'wind turbine construction, 4.5MW, onshore' for detailed technical information.
