Albany, N.Y.-based AWS Truewind LLC has introduced windNavigator Compass, a Web-based tool that provides access to the company's renewable resource data.
Designed to expedite wind site qualification and project management efforts, the Compass integrates with AWS Truewind's wind prospecting and resource analysis application, windNavigator.
Within the windNavigator map window, Compass subscribers can access data featuring nine site characteristics – location speed, display height, latitude and longitude, elevation, roughness, Weibull factors, mean power density, wind rose and monthly speed distribution – to determine whether or not prospecting goals can be met.
windNavigator Compass users can focus on key characteristics, such as prevailing wind direction and monthly speed distribution, to discover the development potential of a specific site, prioritize the opportunity and allocate appropriate resources, according to AWS Truewind.
windNavigator Compass is now included in all Prospector and Developer subscription packages through windNavigator Siting and Assessment.
