With the IMPACT module you can create an overview of the environmental impacts (noise, flickering and visibility) of a proposed wind farm project as seen from the neighbour´s perspective, ensuring transparency and full documentation in a single report.

When all the necessary objects for noise, shadow flickering, ZVI calculation and camera object have been inserted (one set for each neighbour) these are paired to the neighbour. The program can automatically match the objects if all objects belonging to a neighbour are given the same name. When having selected all the WTGs and neighbours to be calculated in the neighbour list, windPRO performs one calculation for each neighbour with all the selected calculation types.

Necessary Input Data (Objects)

The IMPACT calculation is made with the windPRO calculation modules: DECIBEL, SHADOW and ZVI.

Necessary input data are as in DECIBEL, SHADOW and ZVI. However, one or more calculation types can be omitted.

Beyond the already mentioned input data, a photo can be pasted into the calculation. Typically, it will be a photo of the neighbouring house taken from the WTG site, but it can also be a photo from the neighbour toward the visualized WTGs.

Calculation report

With the module users can produce a report for each neighbour. The results of the calculation are listed and held up against the legislation and demands protecting the neighbour if such exists and a simple explanation of the various nuisances the neighbour suffers are given.
