Catch the Wind Ltd., a provider of optical control systems (OCS) for the wind energy industry, has signed a sales agreement with wind project developer enXco, under which enXco will purchase five additional OCS units for wind turbines to be deployed at projects across North America.

Catch the Wind's Vindicator OCS is a wind turbine control system designed for utility-scale wind turbines. From its position on top of the nacelle, the OCS simultaneously measures wind speed and direction in the free-stream inflow ahead of the turbine and uses this information to optimize wind turbine performance, increasing energy output and reducing damaging stress loads, according to the company.

Installation of the units is scheduled to begin in April.
