Wind Project Forensic Analysis
Recognizing and resolving underperformance issues as early as possible helps maximize energy production, optimize operations, and proactively restructure financial and capacity obligations. When performance guarantees are not met and a project is in danger of default, Vaisala can conduct a full forensic evaluation of the project to help you identify the main reasons it isn't delivering on expectations.
Vaisala's proprietary forensic analysis uses our advanced modeling techniques to isolate the systemic sources of underperformance. Our approach provides a long-term variability analysis and includes high-resolution mapping and wake-turbulence modeling. All of these studies are calibrated to the on-site resource and energy production data to minimize uncertainty and provide accurate estimates of power production. By comparing the expected power production to actual during the measurement periods, we are able to isolate issues of resource variability versus other factors that contribute to underperformance.
