International consultancy SgurrEnergy is providing wind monitoring and analysis services for the first phase of a 400 MW wind farm in Ethiopia.

Terra Global Energy Developers LLC, which SgurrEnergy says is the first U.S. energy developer to enter Ethiopia's wind industry, elected SgurrEnergy to support a 12-month wind measurement campaign as part of the project's technical and financial feasibility stage.

Wind data are currently being collected by Terra using two on-site 60 meter met masts. The consultancy has already provided a preliminary six-month energy yield analysis, and the 12-month measurement campaign will be complete in October.

Dereje Abebe, CEO of Terra Global Energy, says construction of the first phase could begin as early as next year.
