Maximising the logistical and cost benefits of remote sensing requires access to fast and efficient local field support, especially in more remote markets. In order to meet this requirement, Vaisala has, over the past 12 months, established or expanded regional partnerships in various parts of the world. This includes partnerships with NERI in Japan, Jim Latimer & Co. KG, MM Pro Management Oy, and Windhunter in Europe, Marti Ltd. in Turkey, LOHO in China and WISE in Australia. Each of these agreements will provide greater access to specialist servicing and technical advice for Triton users in these promising wind markets.
Vaisala has also launched an improved Observations platform that enables users to access wind data from the same dashboard as Vaisala’s time series and energy forecasting tools. The platform has been redesigned to provide easier, faster access to the data and functions formerly hosted on SkyServe.net.
“Remote sensing devices will supplant met towers as the preferred choice of measurement technology for wind energy developers and operators around the world” said Pascal Storck, Head of Renewable Energy at Vaisala. “But this shift will depend on the ability of manufacturers to maintain a robust global supply chain and maximise the opportunities these advanced measurement systems provide for a better understanding of the wind resource.”
Storck added that users now have a single point of entry to the most comprehensive and powerful combination of resource assessment, monitoring and forecasting tools available in the wind energy sector, given that the Observations platform is now accessible through the same dashboard as Vaisala’s time series and energy forecasting tools.
