Elevated Wind Resource Assessment


Wind resource assessment is a crucial, pressure-filled stage in wind energy development. And legacy technologies, such as met masts, are showing their limitations with today’s larger turbines — especially for offshore projects.

The WindCube® series of vertical profiling and 3D scanning lidars are accurate, rigorously validated, cost-effective supplements (or replacements) for met masts and other technologies. Developers around the globe are using WindCube to reduce risk, improve bankability and decision-making, and make better investments.
