Mendoiro-Bustavade Wind Farm, located in Alto Minho consists of 26 wind turbines with 2 MW of unit power and a total installed power of 52 MW and the construction of a substation and control building.
The connection of the park to the power grid is made through a 150 kV power line with a length of 52 km that connects Mendoiro-Bustavade Substation to Pedralva Substation.
The environmental studies included:
- Characterization of the reference situation in order to identify and limit archaeological and ecological sensitive areas, which could condition the establishment of the wind farm;
- Identification, forecast and assessment of potential impacts, positive or negative, arising from the implementation of the wind farm, immediate or long term, during the construction, exploration and decommissioning phases;
- Definition of a set of measures capable of minimizing the identified potential negative impacts.
Environmental Monitoring was carried out during the construction phase and during the initial exploration phase.
