The Bärofen wind farm project goes into the next round and starts with a new wind measurement.
For this purpose, a 100 m high measuring mast was erected at the beginning of July, which will measure the wind speed and wind direction at several heights using anemometers and wind vanes. In addition, weather data such as temperature and air pressure will be recorded. The measurement over 12 months will be used to survey wind conditions in all seasons.

In 2012, a wind measurement was already carried out with an 80 m high measuring mast in the southern part of the project area. Due to the long project development and approval period and the technological development of wind turbines, a new wind measurement is necessary.
To also comply with safety aspects, daytime signs for aviation and obstacle lighting at night are installed, as well as warning tapes for the protection of fauna, especially birds, to make them visible.
The Bärofen wind farm is the first wind farm project in Carinthia to be approved under the UVP-G and will comprise a total of eight wind turbines which, with a planned annual energy yield of approx. 64,000 MWh, will be able to supply around 15,000 Carinthian households with electricity in the future. The wind turbines are planned to be erected and put into operation in 2025.
