The industry-standard vertical profiling lidar for accurate, bankable wind data — offshore and onshore.

New WindCube enhancements

New innovations and services extend the frontiers for the most accurate, trusted and proven lidar for Wind Resource Assessment (WRA).

WindCube has long been one of the most accurate and proven lidars on the market, deployed in both simple and complex terrains. These new capabilities extend the frontiers even further so you can leverage WindCube almost anywhere, in all types of environments.

New WindCube enhancements

    Accurate & bankable

    Vaisala WindCube wind lidar


    WindCube® is the most flexible and accurate wind measurement technology available, for both onshore and offshore projects. It is well-suited for all turbine types and supports continuous measurement campaigns throughout all project phases.

    • Bankable data to secure funding while minimizing risk
    • Precise measurements for energy yield assessment
    • Performance verification

    WindCube can be positioned almost anywhere (even offshore with the WindCube Offshore edition) and covers the rotor sweep of even the largest turbines now and in the future, including emerging offshore technologies. Wherever it is located, WindCube helps users optimize financial performance, increase efficiency, and maximize energy output.


    The best wind data available

    WindCube provides accurate wind measurement up to 300m, with 20 simultaneous heights measured per second. The system also features a hybrid wind reconstruction algorithm that further reduces uncertainty and enables unrivaled IEC classification.

    The result is better, bankable data and a more complete view of the wind profile, both of which help secure funding, reduce uncertainties and the cost of equity, and minimize risk.


    IEC compliant & validated



    WindCube also brings powerful certification advantages. IEC-compliant DNV pre-validated lidar units are available to accelerate deployment by up to two months, and a validation continuity option saves time in case of maintenance events.


    Insights at your fingertips



    WindCube comes with WindCube Insights — Fleet software, an easy-to-use, secure, cloud-based tool that provides real-time insights and simple management, whether you have one system or many.


    Unmatched service & support

    A suite of standard and premium global service offerings maximize uptime and simplify campaigns. They include the industry's best warranty, accelerated workshop and on-site maintenance, and the assurance and speed of our global network of 7 service centers and 2 factories.


    Turnkey options



    WindCube is simple to deploy anywhere, with few permitting or regulatory hassles. Turnkey options such as a 4G modem and affordable power pack enable deployment in the most remote areas. It is suitable for permanent or temporary applications with little or no environmental disruption, while increasing worker safety.

    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.
