Superior lightning detection, anywhere.
Lightning affects the entire wind farm life cycle. From construction and turbine selection to safety and operational continuity, Vaisala’s lightning solutions are optimized to improve weather awareness and project success.
Vaisala’s lightning solutions are rooted in our proprietary ground-based network data, Global Lightning Dataset (GLD360) and National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) — both part of our Xweather family of subscription based products. No other lightning detection networks are as reliable, cover the entire globe with such resolution and accuracy, offer the same consistent level of performance, or can be seamlessly integrated to improve so many other technologies.
Modern data-as-a-service lightning solutions are cost-effective, low-risk ways to improve weather awareness and project success. They are available immediately, with little or no capital costs, construction, or permitting, and the gains they provide can readily offset the investment it takes to use them.
Vaisala solutions are easy to deploy, trusted around the globe, and immediately available. We’re ready anytime to talk with you about your specific needs.

You can find out more about lightning around the globe by visiting the fascinating new global total lightning density map from Vaisala. Never before has it been possible to reliably compare lightning on a national basis everywhere.
Quick and easy access to Vaisala's high-quality, accurate historical lightning data through an API or an easy-to-use web interface for data-driven safety and planning practices, advanced risk assessments, and incident reporting.
An easy-to-use web interface that lets wind energy stakeholders download and compile the exact lightning data they need from hazardous weather events near wind farms.
Reliably distinguish between low-risk lighting strikes and those with greater potential to cause wind turbine damage. This creates
substantial efficiency and allows wind stakeholders to plan decisively and quickly.
