Wind Resource Assessment

Wind Resource Assessment

Vaisala offers a wide range of weather sensors, wind measurement systems, and services to support your wind resource assessment needs.  Our weather expertise and professional grade products provide you with accurate, continuous data during the assessment process.  You don’t have to compromise when it comes to providing data for financing, or getting the level of performance from your wind farm that you expect – let Vaisala be your weather partner.


Weather Monitoring for Power Plants

Weather Monitoring for Power Plants

Weather affects power generation at the location of its production, regardless of the method used (coal, hydropower, wind, solar, etc.).  Vaisala weather systems measure conditions at/near power plants, providing the information decision makers need to optimize operations, run efficiently, and get the most power production.  We offer all the weather equipment you need to maintain power production – from individual weather sensors, to full weather stations, or specific applications, such as lightning tracking software.


Weather Sensors for Wind Turbines

Weather Sensors for Wind Turbines

Wind turbine manufacturers and wind farm operators require high quality environmental measurements to maximize performance and fulfill industry standards. Vaisala’s products fulfill these needs with weather sensors for control systems, wind speed and direction monitoring, weather condition monitoring directly on the turbines, and visibility sensors that dim obstruction lights in clear weather to improve community acceptance of wind farms.


Wind Power Forecasting

Wind Power Forecasting

One of the largest issues facing the wind energy industry is wind power integration and the uncertainty of the wind.  Short-term wind forecasts can assist this issue and will become critical as more renewable-energy sources are added to the power grid.  Vaisala is working with the wind industry to research and develop these short term wind forecasts.


Hydrological Measurement Systems

Hydrological Measurement Systems

Vaisala’s hydro-meteorological stations measure real-time weather conditions at/near hydropower plants, and provide the necessary information decision makers need to optimize their operations and power production.  Precipitation and water level data are essential elements to monitor when producing hydropower.  Vaisala is working with power generation facilities to help them monitor site conditions and maximize their power output. 


Solar Radiation Measurement Systems

Solar Radiation Measurement Systems

For solar power generation it is essential to know the amount of sunlight available at a particular location at a given time. Vaisala’s solar radiation measurement systems monitor conditions at/near solar power generation sites, providing the information necessary for effective operations and maximum power production. Our systems are easy and economical to install and maintain, and they withstand harsh environments while collecting accurate, reliable data.
