Vaisala's Triton® Wind Profiler is an advanced remote sensing system that provides accurate wind measurement data across the entire blade sweep of today's largest wind turbines. With hundreds of Tritons in commercial use on wind development projects and working wind farms, and millions of hours of wind data gathered, the Triton is the wind industry's
market-leading remote sensing system.
Reliable Hub-height Wind Data
Reducing uncertainty in AEP forecasts requires measurements across the full rotor sweep of a turbine. Leading consulting firms accept well-validated sodar data as part of a bankable wind study. Adding Triton data to 60-meter or 80-meter tower data meets the industry's current requirements while reducing the uncertainty of a wind resource assessment and enabling better project design.
Triton's ultra-low power requirement (7 Watts for a standard Triton) and rugged construction allows it to be deployed in remote, non-powered locations -- just like a met tower. Triton operates continuously and sends wind data to you via your own secure Vaisala SkyServe® web portal.
Worry-free Wind Measurement
Triton's robust design, rugged construction, and low power requirements keep it running even in extreme climates and remote locations. Vaisala's support technicians provide daily monitoring, troubleshooting, and field service. SkyServe -- included with every Triton -- stores your wind data in one of the world's premier secure servers and ensures the chain-of-custody of the data throughout your entire wind project.
A Cost-effective Remote Sensing Solution
Triton offers a lower cost of ownership than comparable remote sensing systems and provides the hub height data you need to optimize your project financing packages or gain valuable information about conditions on an operating wind farm.
