PEC Energia led the Brazilian wind industry in adopting remote sensing technology in wind resource assessment. The PEC Energia team uses the Vaisala Triton Wind Profiler to:

  • Use highly accurate hub-height wind data in their wind resource assessment, maximizing project value while avoiding penalties for under-production
  • Rapidly characterize the wind resource in complex terrain and reduce spatial uncertainty
  • Boost their return on investment, both through high top-line returns and low equipment maintenance costs
"Triton is one of the most helpful tools we know, and the most cost-effective solution for reducing uncertainty in complex terrain," — Carlos Bergamo, Director of Engineering, PEC Energia
