Wind turbines are typically located in unobstructed regions (e.g. hilltops) to increase their exposure to wind. Telecommunication sites are found in similar locations to provide better coverage. Signals such as radio, television, microwave communication and radar (radio waves) may be affected by the wind turbines through either obstruction or reflection.

When planning the deployment of wind turbine(s), consideration must be given to the potential impact they may have on local communication links.

When undertaking an EMI assessment, Corearth can provide:

      • The accurate identification and location of all licenced communication installations nearby.
      • Confirmation of ACMA radio communication licence(s) – the assignment of a licence does not imply that a device has actually been installed on-site.
      • Data confirmation with telecommunication network owners, utility and relevant state emergency service operators.
      • A comprehensive review of nearby telecommunication sites and the identification of dwellings which may experience interference.
      • Site visits and tower climbing to resolve data anomalies and confirm desktop database reviews.
      • Fresnel zone calculations.
      • Radio frequency (RF) field measurement survey – pre-construction and post-construction monitoring.
      • Advice on potential mitigation strategies.


With over 50 years combined experience in assessing and managing the impact of cumulative electromagnetic energy emitted from telecommunication installations, Corearth is well placed to deliver EMI assessments.
