Catch the Wind Ltd. says it has signed an agreement with Saturn Power to supply a Vindicator optical turbine control system (OTCS) for Saturn Power's Gesner wind farm, located in Ontario.

The Vindicator OTCS is a wind control system designed for utility-scale wind turbines. From its position on top of the nacelle, the Vindicator OTCS 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 Catch the Wind.
