Niwot, Colo.-based wind data provider Onsemble has added Second Wind's Triton Sonic Wind Profiler to its measurement toolkit, Second Wind says.
Onsemble offers wind developers, wind farm owners and utilities a variety of services focused on improving the certainty of wind measurements.
‘I've long been a believer in remote sensing for the wind industry,’ says Anish Parikh, Onsemble's vice president. ‘As Onsemble has developed our full-service offering for companies conducting wind resource campaigns, Second Wind's Triton is a perfect fit.’
Onsemble completed its certification as a Tier 2 Triton installer this spring and is qualified to site and commission Tritons. By maintaining a fleet of rental Tritons and specializing in challenging installations, Onsemble will allow its customers to begin wind measurement campaigns on short notice and to access hard-to-reach locations, the companies explain.
‘We can site a Triton just about anywhere a Sno-Cat or ATV can go,’ says Parikh. ‘For example, if tower-mounted equipment fails in an ice storm, bringing a Triton in can prevent a study from being interrupted. Together with Second Wind, we offer customers a worry-free wind measurement campaign.’
