Complete, spatial wind data at any stage of a wind project – onshore and offshore, in all types of environments.
Vaisala’s newly designed WindCube Scan Wind Energy Edition delivers the next generation of scanning lidar technology, raising the bar to enable greater wind measurement accuracy, increased situational awareness and actionable intelligence.
New features include a more robust exterior, new scanning head and enhanced laser chain to allow for an operationally consistent range of up to 10 km and more — the most trusted and reliable measurements industrywide. The results are simplicity, flexibility and data accuracy at any stage of a wind project.
Here are just a few highlights:
Wind farms are evolving to include larger turbines, increased heights, and denser installations. WindCube® Scan Wind Energy Edition supports this evolution, providing complete, spatial wind data at any stage of a wind project.
WindCube Scan Wind Energy Edition provides full 3D scanning at a range of 18+km, as well as multiple scanning patterns suitable for a variety of campaign types.
WindCube Scan Wind Energy Edition can be deployed quickly, without the permitting or construction hurdles of met masts. It can also be moved and repurposed indefinitely.
WindCube Scan Wind Energy Edition accurately measures wake and blockage effects, as well as other factors that affect long-term energy production. Developers and operators can finally assess these factors anywhere they need to, whenever they need to.
