In this area, strong wind mostly comes from the north-east, from the sea towards the land. To optimize this wind power, turbines were installed along the shore facing the sea, effectively removing wind breaks, without sacrificing the use of land between the turbines for other purposes.
The 'Wind Farm" as it is aptly called consist of 20 wind turbines. The turbines are on-shore and arranged in a single row spaced 326 meters apart. The turbines' hub height is 70 meters (roughly equivalent to a 23 storey building) with each blade 41 meters long (just 9 meters shy of an Olympic-sized pool) giving a rotor diameter of 82 meters and a windswept area of 5,281 square meters.
This picture was taken in a viewing deck along the Maharlika Highway, Bangui, Ilocos Sur, Philippines using my Olympus Digital cam, three years back.
