Second Wind Rolls Out New Wind Forecasting Tool

Posted by NAW Staff on June 01, 2012 No Comments

Second Wind, a provider of wind measurement technology, software and services, says it has released a new Triton Sonic Wind Profiler package designed to help wind farm operators meet the forecasting requirements necessary to bring their projects online.

Called Triton Ops, the package includes a Triton configured for permanent installation and high-speed communications. Second Wind says specialized firmware and project-specific customization allow Triton Ops to integrate with the centralized reporting and forecasting tools used by wind farm operators, independent system operators and power marketers to manage energy inputs into the grid.

Triton Ops is based on the company's Triton Sonic Wind Profiler, a remote sensing system that uses SODAR technology to provide wind measurements across the turbine rotor sweep.
