Ii ‘o Manumataongo Wind Farm
Wind | Niutoua, Tongatapu
Tonga’s first ever large scaled wind farm with a capacity of 1.3 MW, completed in 2019. The guyed tower ensures that all maintenance operations can be done at the ground level. The unique system largely reduced maintenance cost and dramatically shortened stopping time of wind turbines. In case of cyclones, the turbine can be secured to the ground and protected from violent winds.
