Companies Partner On Wind Measurement Network

Second Wind, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) and WindPole Ventures have joined to create a wind measurement information network that will aggregate real-time, hub-height-standardized wind speed data, which will be used for future real-time forecasting.

Second Wind, WindPole Ventures and MassCEC will partner to deploy a regional network of technology to gather wind resource information, which will provide data to help Massachusetts make the most of its wind resource, according to the companies.

The companies will construct a pilot wind measurement network in southeastern Massachusetts that will consist of seven to 10 sites at which wind data will be collected on the ground with Second Wind's Triton Sonic wind profiler technology or via hub-height tower-based collection methods provided by WindPole.

The announcement coincides with the opening of Second Wind's new facility in Newton, Mass., where the company will manufacture the Triton Sonic wind profiler.
