“one of the biggest windfarm in Asia”
Bangui Wind Farm is a wind farm in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The wind farm uses 20 units of 70-metre (230 ft) high Vestas V82 1.65 MW wind turbines, arranged on a single row stretching along a nine-kilometer shoreline off Bangui Bay, facing the South China Sea. Phase I of the NorthWind power project in Bangui Bay consists of 15 wind turbines, each capable of producing electricity up to a maximum capacity of 1.65 MW, for a total of 24.75 MW. The 15 on-shore turbines are spaced 326 metres (1,070 ft) apart, each 70 metres (230 ft) high, with 41 metres (135 ft) long blades, with a rotor diameter of 82 metres (269 ft) and a wind swept area of 5,281 square metres (56,840 sq ft). Phase II, was completed on August 2008, and added 5 more wind turbines with the same capacity, and brought the total capacity to 33 MW. All 20 turbines describes a graceful arc reflecting the shoreline of Bangui Bay, facing the South China Sea.
Huge! Gigantic! Amazingly beautiful!
While driving along the highway, we were greeted by the view of these very big wind turbines! It's located roughly 8-10 hours drive north of the capital and is pretty secluded. We still had to drive for about 20 minutes towards the shore before we reached the base of one of the turbines.
Definitely a great stop on your road trip to Ilocos.
What can I say? I was in sooooo much awe when we stopped here. Its my first time to be near a wind turbine. We stayed here the whole afternoon, took billions of photos and waited for the sunset. The wave was big and strong and if you stay closer to the water after awhile you'll get wet with the mist. Seriously though the place is so beatiful you don't have to be an expert to get a million dollar shot!
