ABSTRACT
This paper describes a feasibility study for wind turbine project on the Isle of Cumbrae,discusses its system designs and evaluates the possibility for undertaking such a large scale projectwhich may be capable of offering long term benefits to the company, the denizens of the Island andalso the environment.Based on the presently available published literature, the feasibility study performed in thereport takes into account environmental, ecological and financial aspects and an extensive amount of subjective evaluation that leads to the recommendations and a potential design for the wind turbinewhich. The health and safety and environmental considerations were produced as a part of the designprocess. Also, the Construction plan, Quality Assurance plan and the Cost and Income estimations areproduced. Systems Engineering principles and methodologies along with some managementprinciples have been used to arrive at a design and to complete the feasibility study for this project.This project concludes that building this wind turbine will be useful for the environment, feasiblefinancially and can be further evaluated based on public opinion.The project assesses different aspects involved qualitatively and quantitatively.
