Wind Energy Development

Insights for today and tomorrow


Anchored by the legendary WindCube lidar suite, Vaisala’s wind development technologies are highly versatile, cost-effective over long service lives, and trusted around the world.

Vaisala solutions are ideal for standalone measurement campaigns, as well as for addressing measurement gaps and uncertainty left by legacy met masts and wind modeling. Similarly, our fully integrated data services provide the rich history, forecasting, and background insights leaders need to act decisively, protect valuable assets and personnel, and ensure project success.

Key benefits in wind development include:

  • Reduced uncertainty, improving financing and protecting profitability, from onshore complex terrain to remote offshore
  • Revolutionary data quality and suitability for tomorrow’s turbines Increased uptime and safety for assets and personnel
  • Simplification of burdensome processes, such as WRA
  • Informed, data-driven turbine selection and wind farm layout
  • Integration of historical data and excellent forecasting for big-picture visibility

Data you can bank on


Wind developers face consistent pressures to prove a projects viability and bankability, which is one more reason why they turn to Vaisala — the recognized leader in this industry and others. Our lidars and related solutions have been exhaustively tested, accepted by all relevant international standards and guidelines, and proven over hundreds of deployments worldwide.

WindCube lidar provides a complete profile of the wind, reducing the need for extrapolation and other error-inducing factors, and unlike met masts, compact lidar units can be deployed quickly (without long permitting delays) and easily moved or repurposed for further measurement campaigns.

WindCube Complex Terrain Ready Offering

Expand your possibilities with world-class technology and comprehensive support

The wind industry is expanding into more complex terrain as land in simpler terrain becomes less available.

Since wind flow isn’t uniform in complex terrain, modeling technologies ensure the data is accurate, reliable and bankable. Our WindCube Complex Terrain Ready offering gives you precise data in all types of complex terrain.
